The Kriegsspiel

Program text


Commissioned work

Playing war is what brings it about. There is no war without its discourse. War has often been described not as an exception but as the normality of the modern world. What if (with a view to Ukraine and the associated, looming remilitarization of Europe) we first must learn once again that we live “on the prarie” or “in the jungle”? In this participatory performance that activates Julian Warner’s installation at Kunsthalle Krems, the military sandbox serves as a vehicle of ideology critique. By playing war together, visitors are invited to identify previously unsuspected realms of the modern world as theatres of war.

Performative activation of the installation The Kriegsspiel by and with Julian Warner.
In English and German / ca. 30 min.
Commissioned by donaufestival and Kunsthalle Krems
