Reenactment (seminar on ‘reenactment’ as an artistic strategy)

Artists: Didem Pekün, Bassem Saad and Sanja Grozdanic, Maksym Rokmaniko (Center for Spatial Technologies), Anna Dasovic

Starting point for this program is the presentation of the new video work 'grounds for denial' by Anna Dasovic, momentarily on view at Stroom Den Haag. The work is part of Dasovic' Srebrenica series (2015 - currently), in which she focuses on rhetorical structures that make genocidal violence visible and invisible. The seminar 'Reenactment' attempts to contextualize these events within contemporary developments and reflections since then: the legacies of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, the future of NATO's influence in the region, and the relationship between the passivity of the international community and the Russian war on Ukraine.

The program features the following contributions:
- Film 'Disturbed Earth' by Didem Pekün addressing the ineffectiveness of the diplomatic and military apparatus at preventing the massacres at Srebrenica;

- Staged reading by Bassem Saad and Sanja Grozdanic, who revisit monumental historic accounts such as those of the International Criminal Court and NATO;

- Presentation by Maksym Rokmaniko from the Center for Spatial Technologies on their current investigation reconstructing the moment of the missile hit of the Mariupol Theater on 16 March 2022.
