Water wARs, a Squatter's Pavilion

In a city founded by refugees, Water wARs anticipates the flood of environmental refugees into the developed world caused by environmental degradation, global warming and the privatization of the world's drinking water supply by multinational corporations like Bechtel.

“And you thought the oil wars were bad!”

DUMBO, Artist John Craig Freeman, in association with the augmented reality artists collective ManifestAR‘s Venice Biennial AR Intervention, has created a public art work in and around the Giardini venue during the 2011 Venice Biennial.

The project consists of a Water wARs Pavilion for undocumented artists/squatters and water war refugees. The Water wARs Pavilion will grow into a sprawling shantytown over course on the biennial from the June 4th to November 27th.
