In 1981, a group of women chained themselves to the fence of the Royal Air Force base at Greenham Common (United Kingdom), to protest a decision by the British government to keep US nuclear missiles there. This led to the formation of the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp, which fought for the same cause. The missiles were removed in 1991, but the camp remained operational until 2000 to protest the Trident nuclear missile program. Margaret Harrison visited the camp on several occasions. “The fence itself was almost a piece of artwork, like a canvas which people used to hang banners and paintings on and weave things into.” When the New Museum of New York invited her to be an artist in residence in 1989, she decided to do a work on the camp and to make people in the United States aware of it: “after all, the missiles are theirs.” Exploring once more the relation between activism and art, she produced a series on the history and life of the camp, which she presented in an installation there at the Bowery.
