Monuments of the Disclosed

a collection of 9 digital monuments dedicated to nine historical whistleblowers
Commisioned by Artwrld

Inspired by the acts of multiple truth-tellers, artist Ahmet Öğüt collaborated with Artwrld to create Monuments of the Disclosed–a collection of digital monuments to nine historical whistleblowers. Individuals who, often at tremendous personal sacrifice, exposed the fraud, malintent and wrongdoing of unfettered power; and who, more often than not, remain unrecognized for their acts of courage.
Proceeds benefit: Protocinema and the National Whistleblower Center.
Welcome to the AR public art component of Ahmet Öğüt's Monuments of the Disclosed. To access the experience below, use your phone to scan the QR codes.
