The military industrial complex spends trillions of dollars developing increasingly sophisticated and powerful weapons with the sole purpose of killing others.

Every day the news bombard us with massacres, invasions, bomb explosions and terrorist attacks instead of conversations between people to reach agreements.

 

This exhibition, Antidotes Against War, mocks these powerful instruments of war that the media has always glorified as great technological advances. You have to create antidotes against this disease.

 

 

 

 

SYMPTOM

 

 

 

Visions that the world is in a very bad shape. Visions of many wars going on everywhere. Visions of entire villages being massacred by bombs and missiles. Visions of powerful bankers and dictators taking over the world to eat it. All this accompanied by an anguished feeling that you yourself are going crazy, because nobody seems to care.

 

 

 

ANTIDOTE

(recommended dose)

 

 

Mild case: Breath deeply and absorb many of these images that make fun of the power of these fearsome bombers.

 

moderate case: Walk and celebrate life while treading (stepping on) the maximum number of possible bombers ...

 

Serious case: If you can, hang one of these images in the privacy of your home to see it more frequently. This will take away the fear or respect you may have for these terrifying bombs and encourage you to start doing something (put you into action) to get rid of them.
