03/12/2015 Julian Roeder · Exhibition in Berlin
In the old days, little boys used to play with toy soldiers. Today, the US Army and ISIS are recruiting via video games and the gaming industry is hiring ex-militaries as consultants. War does not only inspire horror, but also a certain fascination, especially in young men.
The Bethanien dedicates its latest exhibition to the aesthetics of weapons and the gamification of war. It features Julian Röder who worked on governmental violence for years.
