"The Hyperreal War” - #multimedia focuses on Jean Baudrillard's theory
about war as simulacrum.
The Gulf War is famous to have been the first conflict that was broadcasted live 24/7.
In according to the French philosopher, since then, wars have become hyperreal and simulated not-realities where the boundaries between virtuality and reality are fade one into the another.
Moreover, Baudrillard is provocative and perhaps ironic about how contemporary wars are staged not-events conveyed ad hoc by the mass media.
"The Hyperreal War” - #multimedia, exploring the fascination and normalization of war, compares the mass media contents with different kind of simulated wars that represent as well diverse layers of fake-war.
At the end, everything – newscasts, models, video games, Airsofters – flow into the same concept, up to the end of TV programs. Then, war is over.
