In this performance, Julian Hetzel analyses the paradox of warfare and remote combat via drones, showing that waging war from an increasingly greater distance has been the primary goal in the history of weapons development.
A drone operator sits before a screen in an air-conditioned room on a military airbase, miles away from his remote-controlled weapon and the enemy he kills with a joystick. Booom! The ethics of war have been gradually yet fundamentally redefined. Striking back is no longer an option because the adversary has been removed from the battlefield.
The performance will be in English
