Art Car as “Weapon of Mass Instruction”

Art Car as “Weapon of Mass Instruction” | The Library Project | Scoop.it

(photo by Raul Lemesoff) Art Car or Book Tank? Built from a welded frame atop a 1979 Ford Falcon (a vehicle popular with the then-ruling military junta), Argentinian art-car maker Raul Lemesoff drives around the streets of Buenos Aires distributing free books to all – titled Arma De Instruccion Masiva, or Weapon of Mass Instruction, Raul will pull over for anyone asking for a free book! Motorcyclists and pedestrians will even take books off his car while he’s stopped at lights. Stocked with private-donation books, one of Raul’s main objectives is – and I’m translating here – “to contribute to peace and understanding of people [through literacy].” This includes not only tours through Argentina’s urban capital, but also trips into the countryside where many children don’t attend school – and after many years in Argentina, Raul has recently plotted trips north to Bolivia and Peru. Fascinating!

We're looking to create a library of inspirational books for our teenagers, to encourage them to read and show them just how powerful and moving reading can be! To encourage them to pick up a book from our library, we're asking local people to donate ONE that has inspired them, with their name and a personal message on the inside cover.If you want to get involved, please get in contact! We need lots of pledges to create a fantastic library for all our young people. This campaign is all about empowering teenagers with education and the tools for a better and brighter future, especially whilst we're in this economic climate.
