Control Arms

22 June 2005–28 Aug 2005

This photography exhibition was part of a worldwide campaign for an international binding agreement on the sale of handguns.

The campaign gathered photographs from a million people who supported the effort to put such an agreement in place. The photographs were presented to the United Nations in the autumn of 2006.

The exhibition invited the audience to join the campaign for an international agreement by donating their self-portrait to Amnesty International by means of a web camera at the exhibition. About 8,000 visitors gave their face to the campaign.

The exhibition was opened by the Nobel Peace Prize laureate Jody Williams, who was awarded the Prize in 1997 together with the International Campaign against Landmines.
