The Museum of Conflict or ‘Conflictorium’ is a participatory museum that addresses ideas, questions, and structures around conflict. It is an initiative that brings together different sections of society to celebrate plurality and encourage conflict expression and resolution in creative ways. The museum aims to set up Conflictoriums in other tier-two cities of India, because for some time now, the reference points for art and culture have been megacities such as Delhi, Mumbai, or Kolkata. And in two and three-tier cities art remains inaccessible both for the audience and as artists as well. The intersection of art with conflict presents itself as extremely relevant in Chhattisgarh, where Conflictorium intends to be a catalyst of important socio-political collective conscience around the tensions in the state. Along with conceptualizing the various themes that the museum will house, the project also involved developing collateral material, museum graphics, and communication graphics.
