Project cleansweep

 

 
 

Project Cleansweep takes its name from a Ministry of Defence report issued in 2011 identifying 14 sites throughout Britain where tens of thousands of tonnes of mustard gas, phosgene and other lethal chemicals were made, processed, stored, burned and dumped since World War I. Project Cleansweep documents the mark of military activities upon the British landscape and provokes deeper consideration of their lasting social and environmental impact, challenging conventional understandings of place.
