3D Street Art for Nuclear Abolition
The World Future Council and UNFOLD ZERO have commissioned a 3D Interactive Art piece on nuclear abolition which will be installed in a public place in Berlin from September 30th until October 3rd.
The installation is part of the IPB World Congress and Chain Reaction 2016, a series of civil society actions and events around the world to highlight the immorality and insecurity of nuclear weapons, oppose the institutions and policies perpetuating the nuclear arms race, and support nuclear disarma-ment actions.
The 3D street art painting will provide a view into the catacombs of the nuclear weapons system, and provide a possibility for the public to end this.
Don’t miss the chance to take a look into, and then seal, the nuclear abyss!
