Draw a soldier (participatory art)

Installation. Relational Art. Draw exercise

Honourable mention. Generaciones 2009 Award, Obra Social Caja Madrid.

Participants were asked to draw the image of the soldier they had in their minds.

Thanks to the drawing, we can check our personal image of a soldier, see how stereotyped or mediated it is and create our own criteria about the military society of our countries.

 The outcome of this participation is translated into 600 drawings, which are a real image of people’s vision (most participants were from Spain) about soldiers.
