The chapter suggests that the artists and art are having an elemental role in the worldwide campaign of amending the International Criminal Law by including the Law of Ecocide in it. The analysis in the chapter is based on the evidence gathered through artistic research and leading an associate group’s campaign during the years 2020–2022. One piece has been endorsing the Stop Ecocide International’s aims by setting up Artists for Ecocide Law silos for the campaign. The artworks and statements are examined through the concept of articulation as used by Stuart Hall, Lawrence Grossberg, and Jennifer Daryl Slack. The significance that artistic work brings into the whole of the movement and how it makes a difference regarding the engagement for public debate are discussed in detail. Lastly, the chapter gives an overview of the discussion in the launch event of the artistic campaign, which marks the beginning of the international discussion of creatives and artists endorsing criminalizing Ecocide.
