Up in Arms

Exhibition, Art competition and Interventions in public space

The focus of the exhibition project is the emancipatory potential of art. Art ›up in arms‹ challenges us to take a closer look: at the weapons exploding in distant places while generating profits that benefit us here. Artists and NGOs work together on this project to shed light on the international arms trade. In the exhibition space as well as in public space in Berlin, questions will be raised: What role does the arms trade and its lobby networks play today? What role has it played historically? And how can we join arms against it?

nGbK project group: Ayşe Güngör, Cassandra Mehlhorn, Gabriela Seith, Amalie Sølling-Jørgensen, Johanna Werner

In cooperation with Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien as well as Adopt a Revolution, Aktion Aufschrei – Stoppt den Waffenhandel!, European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights, Global Net – Stop the Arms Trade, LobbyControl, urgewald
