AKT creates art objects from weapons, destroyed by the Swiss Foundation for Mine Action. The Swiss Foundation for Mine Action is a non-governmental organization where former soldiers organize the destruction of weapons around the world in conflict zones to protect civilian populations. The metal collected is transformed at l’Ecole Nationale des Arts et Métiers in Cluny/Burgundy.
