Frank & Robbert have created a 400-strong armoury of harmless weapons made of wood. In dealing with killing hardware and all its social, political, economic, cultural, and sexual ramifications, the project is unambiguous. It is distinctly about the global omnipresence of guns – in the media, film industry, and our direct environment – yet reflects upon a broad set of issues, from the production and distribution of firearms, to their presence in our everyday lives and social imaginations. Moreover, it touches upon the emerging possibilities of DIY manufacturing of guns, such as 3D printing. Included is an essay by Charlotte Van Buylaere, translated into the six official languages of the UN.
