WAR FAIR is a personal project that examines the world of defence industry trade fairs. As the world yet again is rushing towards another arms race, and defence spending on a heavy rise, where are all these billions of dollars being spent? And how does the world of selling war actually look?
Over the last two years I’ve visited numerous of the large defence fairs, with thousands of exhibitors and guests its a world of its own, far away from any frontline and many times with combating countries visiting the same fairs. It’s a world where marketing is king and death is never mentioned- it’s a world of defence and security, not aggression and violence, at least if you ask those immersed in it.
