Playing with Weapons
They look cute and cuddly. But look again and you’ll see them for what they are: bombs, missiles and mortars. As toy guns are popular as ever, Hannah van Luttervelt thought it was time to take the next step with these toys of mass destruction. Although they are made from soft wool, the shape and size are for real. The biggest is a stuffed replica of the nuke on Hiroshima, which ironically was nicknamed ‘Little Boy’. A short accompanying movie shows how politicians play with their bombs like boys with their toys.
No Money Sector
As the digital revolution is likely to kill more jobs, the chances of social unrest will rise. To prevent people from feeling lost Van Luttervelt sees the need to try and define an alternative economic system that does not revolve around earning money. After researching various options, she developed a future scenario based on the concept of an unconditional basic income. In the ‘No Money Sector’ we will openly share information and skills. Want to know how fulfilling that can be? Play the game and find out if you’re a creator, translator or facilitator. This moneyless monopoly will give you a new perspective on the major challenges in society.
