We have been carrying war in our pockets for some time now, says Christine Gaigg. We take it with us wherever our mobile phones are. Propaganda and reports are rampant in an inextricable mix of voyeurism and manipulation on the web and in the social media. It’s all about the Islamic State, about Syria, Iraq, Russia, Ukraine, the USA. There is an information war going on, which is embedded on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, in smartphones and tablets. In collaboration with composer Klaus Schedl, Gaigg consults the digital video material from the web with analogue, performative means, thereby opening up a different perspective on the images of terror and violence.
