Ganzeer, Swiss Arms, September 2012

Place: Keserne Basel, Basel, Switzerland

Description: Street mural created for Theatrefestival Basel that compares the number of deaths by gunshot in the US with the number of deaths during Egypt’s uprising. The public was invited to play the role of the “representative victims,” by laying on the ground and having their outlines traced. By presenting the “infographic” (which reveals that US victims are at least 8 times higher than Egyptian victims) alongside a quote by the Swiss Secretariat for Economic Affairs, one is left to reexamine the notion of “conflict zones.” The public was also allowed to vote on whether or not, as a result, Switzerland should ban arms exports to the United States, which in fact is one of Switzerland’s major buyers.

The execution of this project would not have been in any way possible without Mr. Daniel Kunzler who is pictured on a not so pleasant day in the last image.
