The Exhibition That Shouldn't Exist | Art for art's sake... | Scoop.it

Control Arms, a worldwide coalition fighting for approval of the Arms Trade Treaty, is running “The exhibition that shouldn’t exist”, a collection of paintings designed to look like abstract artworks in a first sight. When people read placards beside the paintings, they realize they’re actually in front of gunshots stories. Through a QR code on each placard, people can see the ballistics test that simulated the related story on the painting.
