VICTIMS FROM DARFUR

With the installation arena of Warum 2.0 we want to say clearly we are done with the idea of the spectacle. Isn’t our question then: how to resist making impact, while at the same time using a technological apparatus that is normally meant to create exactly that, impact that is, if not something worse?  Warum 2.0 is definitely about research and investigation. It is not only about taking the tools of impact in our hands. Much more so, it is about displaying the whole apparatus of (new) media itself (at least part of it), and to construct with it an environment one can relate to; in which visitors and users alike can find and take positions of their own, and start seeing the whole picture, if not start to get insights in the ways techniques of impact actually work. In this way distances to impact may be discovered and eventually appreciated.
