Exporting War

Part of "Weapons lounge"


German /  ca. 120 min

After last year’s premiere of “FRONTex SECURITY” at HAU, Hans-Werner Kroesinger now continues his research on the European arms and security industry with Exporting War. For 200 years now, in a small village in the Black Forest, weapons have been produced and exported all over the world. A success story from Mauser to Heckler&Koch. “Exporting War” is a piece about the market in weapons, a trade that decides conflicts, promotes crises, stokes up or ends wars. What are the common interests that link industry, science, politics, and sales markets? Which weapon systems are required by the new asymmetrical wars? Along with the performances, there will also be a talk with experts from politics and the media.
