Metropolitan Peace Badge
This piece was made by War Boutique, who also made the exact same piece worn by the Riot Policeman at Banksy’s Summer Exhibition. Bristol Museum, 2009
“Cities will always need policemen in some form, ‘Metropolitan Peace’ is a reminder of how delicate a balance of power is enshrined in these roles.
We need to tackle the loss of transparency, accountability, and trust head-on, and constantly re-examine the covenant between law enforcers and ordinary citizens if we truly want to make our communities more peaceful and inclusive.”
