WAR UPON US

Audiovisual Live-Performance on War and Peace
DARKO* (B) & Alexandra Reill (A)


When:
May 17, 2011, 8 PM
 
Where:
MAK - Museum of Applied Arts Vienna
A 1010 Vienna, Stubenring 5
 
   

A real-time audiovisual performance sees conceptual and media artist Alexandra Reill (Vienna) join with electronic sound composer DARKO* (Brussels) to examine the role of transnational enterprises in the creation of peace and/or the construction of war. Does war simply arise on its own, or is war something that is ?made?? Who profits from war? What role does the media play? And to what extent are individuals subject to war-related interests from the economic and/or political realms? And can they themselves exercise any sort of influence over peace-building or war-planning?

Utilizing TV spots and blockbuster productions, DARKO* and Reill explore contemporary developments of a globalization which is formed and characterized by big business?and, not unimportantly, which is strongly influenced by the media.
