EL MARTILLO / THE HAMMER El Martillo is the result of an Eclectic Electric Collective project for the climate conference in Cancún. After its use in Sundays Climate parade at Brandenburger Tor, it will be sent to Mexico folded up and packed into a suitcase. Upon arrival it will be carried by a climate caravan through the streets, from Puebla, through Mexico City, all the way to Cancún. El Martillo is our contribution to the struggle for climate justice during the COP 16, the climate conference in Mexico. The concept and the construction of the hammer is the result of a collective work process.
Rafael Ibara says:
"The hammer is a symbol for a movement from below. It is our gift to the demonstrators in Mexico in order to lend their demands a visual presence."
Sarah Drain explains: "The hammer is a tool which can be used in both a constructive as well as a destructive way. Its connection to climate change is that we now have a choice to take responsibility for a change in our own hands or to let the destruction go on."
"El Ratillo" is a part of the "Battle of the Spectacle" exhibition, which will be simultaneous with the climate conference in Cancún from the 27th November to the 10th December in OKK, Prinzenallee 29, Wedding.
