Sounds like war: Kriegserklärung

Part of "Waffenlounge"


45 min

In retrospect World War One was the last war that began with a formal declaration of war. Today the dramaturgy of starting military hostilities by a performative act has become anachronistic. Instead a period of international civil war has begun. How to end a war which has never been declared? In their lecture-concert andcompany&Co. start off on the double-meaning of ‘Kriegserklärung’ and look for the relationship between performance art and the art of warfare.
