Abstract

The WWI artefact examined here is the Anti-Neutral Suit, designed in 1914 by the Futurist artist Giacomo Balla. Juxtaposing the Suit's materiality against that of some present-day anti-neutral outfits, I suggest that international law's most important (individual, collective) subjects are not, in fact, definitively peaceable and egalitarian but rather violently expansionist.
