Amy Corcoran writes 'Art the Arms Fair: making art not war' for the Red Pepper

14 September 2017

Amy Corcoran, PhD student at the QMUL's International State Crime Initiative (ISCI). writes in the Red Pepper about organising the artistic resistance to the weapons dealers’ showcase in London: “Art the Arms Fair consists of over 130 works of art, from the tiniest painting to a half-scale replica of a Tomahawk missile…Walking around the exhibition you not only get a sense of people’s anger but a desire for something new, something peaceful and beautiful. It’s both uplifting and energising to see the passion put into the works, and that’s another reason why art is the perfect choice to raise awareness of the arms fair further afield.”
