On 11th September 2023 the award-winning Art the Arms Fair (ATAF) will return to London with its 4th exhibition. Running until 17 September, the exhibition will coincide with the Defense and Security International (DSEI) arms fair being held at the ExCeL Centre. Art the Arms Fair continues to expose the DSEI arms fair, which is held with the support of the UK Government in London every two years. One of the world’s largest arms fairs, this year’s DSEI will have 2,800 suppliers, and more than 230 new exhibitors. Despite Sadiq Khan calling for a stop to the event, numbers of attendees are expected to surge following Putin’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.
Art from We Ain’t dED Yet will be sold to support Demilitarise Education as they work with students to collect research on every university in the UK. dED is planning to leverage this data to campaign for the adoption of the Demilitarise Education Treaty. Participating artists include: Jeremy Deller, Gavin Turk, Adam Broomberg, Artists x Allies x Hebron, kennardphillips, Peter Kennard, Ed Hall, Kyle Goen, Jill Gibbon, Ken Nwadiogbu, Cake$, Sharon Rose, EPI, Subvertiser aka Dr. D, Protest Stencil, and Zedsy.
