Research output: Non-textual formArtefact


“Hands Up Don’t Shoot!” is a creative response to the ongoing killings of black males by the police. The work is a crowd sourced effort to enlist volunteers to stamp the image of a black male in a position of surrender upon the surface of American currency. This participatory project seeks to intervene upon the very currency of our economic system with an iconic, hand stamped image of protest. Over 1000 of these stamps have been made and shared with project volunteers who have shared images of their stamped currency that can be viewed on the project website.
