BRADY CENTER FOR VIOLENCE | METRO GUNSHARE PROGRAM

Partnering with The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, we used the tradition of protest art as a strategy to force people to consider something tangible, something real.  The philosopher Theodor Adorno said, “all art is an uncommitted crime,” meaning art challenges the status quo by its very nature.  We created the Metro Gun Share Program, an art installation modeled after the city’s popular bike-sharing service, to challenge the people of Chicago to bear arms against the status quo of gun violence.
