AM 180 is a story told through image and text about the first small calibre rifle to be equipped with a laser sighting mechanism. Crucial for use of the AM 180 was the inner logic of the firm Voere, who produced the rifle on grounds that the criminal or terrorist would give up upon seeing the red dot of the sighting mechanism. The story revolves around red- green contrast, the economic world crisis, Küpper’s colour theory and demonstrations for world peace.
