CT INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL WAR ON STAGE – STAGES OG WAR – 22nd of May – 25th of May
How does WAR affect the mind and body of both the shooter and the targets? Modern warfare is no longer only a conflict between two states centered on one main battlefield where the soldiers fight for territory. Guerilla-tactics, terror, biological, chemical and diplomatic strategies have come to change the terms of WAR end blur the borders between allies, enemies and civilians.
Where and who is our source of information on actions of WAR? Is it journalists, media, regimes or multinational organizations or refugees in the European asylums? And what part do the images play in the storytelling of WAR waging around the world?
