Although peace and development, cooperation and win-win is now becoming a consensus widely acknowledged, in a world under radical change with new crisis and new challenge, peace is still precious for all human beings.

Being a city with long history, Nanjing is called the City of Caritas. However, during the second world war, the Massacre by Japanese Invader became the forever wound of this city and their people. Peace is both a calling in war time and the conscience and spirit to be protected and insisted.

We select Peace as the theme of this poster biennial, and we hope posters as an international visual language can spread consensus of our human being across boundaries of countries, nations, languages, and cultures by evoking, expressing, and communicating.
