Come and see. Stop the violence of impact. Let the image reach out.
WARUM 2.0 is an installation arena dedicated to the victims of war in Darfur, Afghanistan, Haiti, Gaza, Iraq and Kosovo; to Daniel Demoustier who filmed them, and to Paul Virilio who relates these media with techniques of impact.
WARUM 2.0 is a production by CARGO and Stefaan Decostere, with Christian Decker, Edwin Uytenbroek, Jonas Hielscher, Chris Devriese, Johan Blaeke, and with students architecture TU Delft/Media Studies.
Thanks to V2_, Institute for the Unstable Media and to VAF/Flemish Film Fund, the Ministry of the Flemish Community and Artefact/Stuk for their original support.
The exhibition of WARUM 2.0 in Rotterdam is made possible by the Gemeente Rotterdam, dienst Kunst en Cultuur the Prins Bernhard Cultuur Fonds Zuid-Holland and the Ministry of the Flemish Community.
The artists attempt to revitalize perception, giving full attention to the documentary image, offering tools that inform against the uses of technology that determine our relation to the world.
