Nuclear Hot Potato

Year: 1982

Categories: Anti-War Activism


Overview:

Skaggs, with friends and students from the School of Visual Arts, created a performance during an anti-nuclear demonstration near the United Nations, in which human sized rag doll bodies were piled with real human bodies in a big heap.

Artists Sara Jones and Kasoundra, wearing Breshnev and Reagan masks, battered each other with mock nuclear weapons.
