The representation of war between history and performance
15 February 2017
Imagining an event that should have happened without it happening, enacting a re-enactment, a re-enactment, to make us participate. Imagine how our actions as ‘improvised diplomats’ could have changed the course of history to resist that war which changed the political geography of Europe.
How has our perception of war changed? Now that diplomacy seems to have disappeared and war no longer has clear fronts and borders?
