About

We are the Army of the Broken Hearted, a Birmingham based school of messianic situationists. Through the creation of public spectacles we critique the narratives of our times, our people and our city. We aim to awaken our people towards a critical consciousness from which they may put their oppressors to the test, speak their own word into the world and be reconciled to God.

    “This is the great humanistic and historical task of the oppressed: to liberate themselves and their oppressors as well. The oppressors, who oppress, exploit and rape by virtue of their power, cannot find within this power the strength to liberate either the oppressed, or themselves. Only the power that springs from the weakness of the oppressed will be sufficiently strong to free both.”[i

    I really like this quote, I have seen this principle at work even within the authority structures within individual families and it really is true, God calls the oppressed to liberate the oppressor. Wow, what an honour to have that responsibility.
