War in the streets: terror and weapons in media

The prominence of automatic firearms in the 2015 Paris terrorist attacks has marked the return of the image of the battlefield soldier in European everyday life: armed terrorists and security forces in military attire seem to increasingly populate public space. This development also affects the production and perception of news reports, cinema and media art. In response to a screening of digital artwork and fragments from film and news media, a panel lead by artist Dani Ploeger and featuring a criminologist, a journalist and a international relations scholar will discuss everyday experiences of fear and violence.
