Samenvatting

QUOTES “If one thinks of what children usually do, things such as draw, sit at the computer, listen to music, learn or help with the chores come to mind. And if that someone thinks of war, what images will he or her see? Perhaps rows of uniformed soldiers marching in step, or tanks and armored vehicles moving in a big group, or the smoke after a bomb has exploded. - The reality, however, is that the majority of wars today are civil conflicts fought with small arms. And the upsetting news, is that wherever such combats take place, many of those fighting soldiers are children.” “'Shooting became just like drinking a glass of water' – Ex-child-soldier, 10 yrs.” “It is exactly how you think it is, and not different!” “‘I believe children have the resilience to outlive their sufferings, if given a chance’ (Beah, 2007). I share the same opinion and therefore, my inspiration for my collection, Camouflaged Childhood, comes from the transitional phase I found recruited kids to be in. Threatened and brainwashed by strangers, these kids are at a crossroads between holding on to their childhood and being transformed into cannon fodder. In this juncture, I have found opportunities to play with the brutalization from child to barbarian, experimenting with existing symbols for childhood and conflict. This allows my collection to raise awareness and to give the designs an unexpected edge. Especially for my graduation collection I will collaborate with WarChild, and will donate 100% of my profit from twenty laptop cases that will be sold at the final graduation event.” PAPER: Children Drilled Into Perpetrators 1.
