NATO meets in London today to commemorate its 70th anniversary. Set up in 1949 to provide collective security against the Soviet Union, NATO’s role has since shifted. In this photo, children in Kosovo show off their hand drawn tattoos of union flags and British Army badges (1999). . The NATO-led Kosovo Force (KFOR) entered Kosovo in 1999 after a controversial bombing campaign which forced Serbian forces to withdraw. Although Kosovo declared independence from Serbia in 2008, around 3,500 NATO troops remain in country to this day. . #NATO #ColdWar

“‘To be quite frank, if we can’t learn from these and understand the dangers of not protecting our culture and our heritage, then we’re in a very, very bad position”. . Artist @pierssecunda has spent a decade documenting the deliberate destruction of cultural heritage, travelling to Mosul Museum in 2018 after it was targeted by ISIS fighters. There, he was able to mould the damaged surfaces of smashed sculptures, using these moulds to create a series of artworks reflecting the destruction—one of which can be seen as part of our #WhatRemains exhibition. . © Piers Secunda/Zproductions . #pierssecunda #isisbulletholepainting #CultureUnderAttack #Syria #Iraq
