Karipbek Kuyukov, Kazakhstan
2018 in Salzburg
Karipbek Kuyukov dedicated his life and his art (stirring, hand-painted reminder pictures) to the goal that no one should suffer any more from the terrible consequences of nuclear weapons production and use. As part of the movement that brought about the end of underground bomb testing in the Soviet Union, he contributed to the closure of the atomic bomb test site in Kazakhstan in 1991. He has raised his voice against the possession, transfer and use of nuclear weapons.
