Building an AK.. as art! Master of Fine Art thesis project
« on: February 21, 2012, 02:27:52 PM »

"DIY AMD AK47" will cover the construction of an AK-pattern weapon and the creation of pictographic instructions intended for distribution that detail the process. These instructions will be made available on the web and distributed in “zine” form. They are intended to cover the complete construction of the weapon from parts to operation as a challenge to the notion of a state as defined by Weber as that entity which has claimed a “monopoly on the legitimate use of violence”.

Civilian gun rights are an interesting place to explore activist interventions. Citizens have taken up arms in defense of their participation in government and as a resistance to state violence most recently and widely reported as part of the Arab Spring uprisings. One particularly compelling example from the past took place during the Soviet-Afghan war in which the Mujaheddin produced their own AK-pattern rifles. These rifles, known as "Khyber Pass AKs" enabled an armed resistance to be mobilized by civilians without military manufacturing infrastructure. The same lessons learned by the Kyber Pass gunsmiths can be distilled into an instruction set intended for any oppressed people interested in defending themselves by producing the "People's Gun".
