Peter Zizka conceived the virtual minefield as a mix of art project and installation. Our society bears joint responsibility for the use of landmines and has continued to produce and improve these types of weapons. Yet landmines have been thoroughly banished from our own lives and are now considered a barbaric means of force.
The idea behind the virtual minefield: civic institutions, public authorities, schools, theaters, municipalities, companies, and private individuals can take on the world’s minefields by donating a minimum of 500 Euros to help clear a virtual minefield. Every donor receives a segment in the installation as confirmation for their agreement to take on this responsibility. The proceeds from this action would benefit Medico International’s mine-clearing projects in Afghanistan and Angola.
