The Captured Project

Monday July 08, 2019 Written by Sam

The world isn’t always fair place. For instance, Nestlé allegedly uses child labour to farm cocoa on the Ivory Coast. Courts have found that some guards even (allegedly) physically assault children who try to escape. Horrible. But Nestlé’s CEO Charles Listo Vera is mostly only held accountable by his company’s bottom line.

Are corporate crimes of this scale comparable to a single instance of attempted manslaughter? It’s an interesting question. For over a year, The Captured Project has been attempting to even the score (symbolically at least) by asking people in prison to draw the people they think should be in prison. Somewhat suprisingly, the artworks are all pretty good. Unlike the subject matter. Well worth checking out.
