The topic of UPinARMS was the critical examination of the arms business. Through artistic approaches, historical conditions, economic and political entanglements in the arms trade and its extent and ambivalences should be made aesthetically and physically tangible.

"Art in the Underground" is a competition for artists announced by the New Society of Fine Arts. Drafts for subway stations in Berlin were to be submitted - as an alternative to the advertising posters on the back tracks.

Work Sample: The Slash of War

As the great exhibition Fantastic Women in the Schirn 2020 highlighted, it has a long tradition for female visual artists to get involved socially and politically.

The project of three artists/ journalists Zehra Dogan – Barbara Schober - Asya Umarowa is also linked to this tradition.
