“Monsters exist, but they are too few in number to be truly dangerous. More dangerous are the common men, the functionaries ready to believe and to act without asking questions.” (Primo Levi)
Can you preserve your humanity if you are confronted with extreme violence? And do you feel responsible for genocidal situations of the past?
Experts Erna Rijsdijk, Ugur Üngör, Nenad Fišer, and Inger Schaap will discuss our individual and collective responsibility for genocides and extreme violence. To what extent are we complicit? And how can we prevent the occurrence of extreme violence in the near future?
A unique evening with video- and soundinstallations, dialogues, a question game, lectures, and debate. With among others Erna Rijsdijk (university lecturer Military Ethics NLDA), Nenad Fišer (philosopher and former employee Yuguslavia Tribuna), Ugur Ümit Üngör (researcher NIOD institute, professor Utrecht University) and Inger Schaap (historian, national director Humanity in Action Nederland). Markha Valenta will moderate the discussion.
Theatre directors Illil Land-Boss and Giselle Vegter have examined the relation between humanity and genocide. Their documentary-theatrical installation Sieben Räume Unbegreifen successfully premiered in May 2015 and can now be experienced in De Balie.
