De fjerne krige særligt i Irak og Afghanistan har affødt en række reaktioner i litteraturen, filmen og på teatret, der alle har taget militære emner op til diskussion. Omvendt er selve krigen siden årtusindeskiftet blevet vævet stadig tættere sammen med repræsentationer. I dag udkæmpes krigen også med (mis)information, med billeder, i simulationer, i forestillede scenarier og i virtual reality krigsspil. Under overskriften&nbsp;<em>Krigskunst&nbsp;</em>undersøger Passage 80 sammenfiltningen af krigen og dens repræsentationer. Med udgangspunkt i krigens æstetiske former undersøger nummerets tekster på tværs af kunstarterne, hvordan kunst og kultur bliver militariseret; hvordan fiktioner forvandles til effektive midler i krigsapparatet; hvordan højteknologiske krige sanses af soldater og af civilbefolkningen; hvordan de fjerne krige viser sig i samfundet som en hjemsøgelse i form af veteranen; og endelig hvilken rolle kunsten har, når militæret forvandler den til krigskunst.</p> Jens Christian Borrebye Bjering, Anders Engberg-Pedersen, Solveig Gade, Christine Strandmose Toft ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://tidsskrift.dk/passage/article/view/111718 søn, 23 dec 2018 00:00:00 +0100 Serious games https://tidsskrift.dk/passage/article/view/111719 <p>Anders Engberg-Pedersen: “Serious games. Harun Farocki and Military<br>Aesthetics”<br>This article charts the emergence of a military-aesthetic regime in the twenty-first century. It shows how the US military has co-opted and militarized the field of aesthetics through the development of virtual worlds that train, prepare, and process military engagements. Using the German artist Harun Farocki’s installation <em>Serious Games</em> as a prism for this development, the essay charts the collaborations between military institutions, academics, and the creative industries. The key question is: what happens to the notion of “war experience” in the age of immersive virtual reality technologies? To find plausible answers, the article situates military aesthetics along a historical axis with the emergence of the modern wargame around 1800, and along a theoretical axis by drawing on key thinkers in philosophical aesthetics (Baumgarten, Dewey, Rancière).</p> Anders Engberg-Pedersen ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://tidsskrift.dk/passage/article/view/111719 søn, 23 dec 2018 00:00:00 +0100 Any study of defeat should be closely allied to the study of heuristic defection (I) https://tidsskrift.dk/passage/article/view/111720 <p>Jørgen Michaelsen: "Any study of defeat should be closely allied to the study of heuristic defection (I)"</p> Jørgen Michaelsen ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://tidsskrift.dk/passage/article/view/111720 søn, 23 dec 2018 00:00:00 +0100 Razzle Dazzle https://tidsskrift.dk/passage/article/view/111721 <p>Jens Tang Kristensen: “<em>Razzle Dazzle</em>. The Camouflaged Avant-Garde”<br>This article demonstrates that <em>Razzle Dazzle</em>, a type of camouflage applied to war and merchant ships in the early twentieth century, can be seen as a complex form of visual expression that emerged in close dialogue with several of the avant-garde movements which appeared in the same period. In a sense <em>Razzle Dazzle</em> can thus further be seen as a mode by which the avant-garde was inadvertently integrated into the military sector, which certain avant-garde groups, namely the Futurists, idealized.</p> Jens Tang Kristensen ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://tidsskrift.dk/passage/article/view/111721 søn, 23 dec 2018 00:00:00 +0100 Ord, steder og andre ting vi tabte i krigen: om redactions https://tidsskrift.dk/passage/article/view/111722 <p>Jens Bjering: “Words, Places, and Other Things We Lost in the War: On<br>Redactions”<br>The article investigates the use of government redactions in three texts which relate in different ways to the War on Terror: Ex-CIA agent Valerie Plame’s <em>Fair Game</em>, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence’s Study of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Detention and Interrogation Program, and Mohamedou Ould Slahi’s&nbsp;<em>Guantanamo Diary</em>. While the formal reason for redacting texts is to prevent specific pieces of sensitive information from reaching the public, the article claims—and supports through its readings—that redactions in these cases also are used as literary-narrative strategies with which to frame the reader’s general reading experience and thus his or her overall impression of and opinion about the War on Terror.</p> Jens Christian Borrebye Bjering ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://tidsskrift.dk/passage/article/view/111722 søn, 23 dec 2018 00:00:00 +0100 Når militæret skriver krigshistorier https://tidsskrift.dk/passage/article/view/111723 <p>Christine Strandmose Toft: “When the Military Writes War Stories. A Reading of David Abrams’ <em>Fobbit</em>”<br>This article examines David Abram’s novel <em>Fobbit</em> (2012), a satirical comedy about Chance Gooding who works as a public affairs officer in the Army. First part of the article concerns the representation of the military’s attempt to represent war and asks why it is of paramount importance to the military to control the public’s view of the Iraq War. The second part considers the novel as meta-representation and discusses the kind of laughter it produces and its critical potential.</p> Christine Strandmose Toft ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://tidsskrift.dk/passage/article/view/111723 søn, 23 dec 2018 00:00:00 +0100 Any study of defeat should be closely allied to the study of heuristic defection (II) https://tidsskrift.dk/passage/article/view/111724 <p>Jørgen Michaelsen: "Any study of defeat should be closely allied to the study of heuristic defection (II)"</p> Jørgen Michaelsen ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://tidsskrift.dk/passage/article/view/111724 søn, 23 dec 2018 00:00:00 +0100 Krigen, kunsten og hjemsøgelsen https://tidsskrift.dk/passage/article/view/111725 <p>Ann-Katrine Schmidt Nielsen: “War, Art, and Hauntings. An analysis of haunting in Danish veteran art and literature”<br>We might say that ‘wars haunt’ in order to designate how they resonate in, influence and shape societies, relations and individuals – even long after official peace agreements have been made. However, what exactly does this mean and how might such haunting appear in art and literature? This article investigates how contemporary remote warfare can be seen as haunting (in) Danish art and literature made by or in close collaboration with Danish war veterans. Through the analyses of the participatory pop music by Peter and the Danish Defence, the novel <em>Mikael</em> by Dy Plambeck, and the collection of poems <em>Så efterlades alt flæskende</em> by Iraq veteran Mikkel Brixvold, three hauntological modes are suggested: a political, a psychological and an affective mode, each accentuating various aspects of such haunting.</p> Ann-Katrine Schmidt Nielsen ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://tidsskrift.dk/passage/article/view/111725 søn, 23 dec 2018 00:00:00 +0100 Simulerede krigsteatre https://tidsskrift.dk/passage/article/view/111726 <p>Solveig Gade: “Simulated Theaters of War. On Rimini Protokoll and Harun Farocki’s explosion of the temporality and spatiality of the battle space”<br>This article posits that the current alliances between the military, Hollywood, and the gaming industries mark an unprecedented degree of refinement in the use and shaping of the perceptual apparatuses of civilians as well as deployed personnel as an integral part of warfare. Resorting to Carl von Clausewitz’ concept of <em>Theater of War</em> and further drawing on the theoretical insights of amongst others James Der Derian and Tim Lenoir, the article seeks to investigate the explosion of the battle fields’ temporality and spatiality in today’s mediatized war scape. For this investigation, Harun Farocki’s video installation <em>Serious Games</em> and Rimini Protokoll’s performance <em>Situation Rooms</em> will serve as cases. Furthermore, the article will discuss how in different ways, the two works seek to make the seemingly forgotten events of war surface through a strategy of combining documentary and fictitious elements.</p> Solveig Gade ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://tidsskrift.dk/passage/article/view/111726 søn, 23 dec 2018 00:00:00 +0100 Memoria https://tidsskrift.dk/passage/article/view/111727 <p>Annelis Kuhlmann: “<em>Memoria</em>. A theater performance about war as present memory”</p> <p>This article throws light on how the theater performance, <em>Memoria</em>, by Odin Teatret, Denmark, deals with trauma from World War II as material, so that the actors in the theater production create a complex form of memory act on stage. The explicitly analogue form of <em>Memoria</em> becomes a strength through the bodily presence between actors and spectators. The increasing absence of speech forms a symbolic thread in the witnessing of the war.</p> Annelis Kuhlmann ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://tidsskrift.dk/passage/article/view/111727 søn, 23 dec 2018 00:00:00 +0100 Slagscener i det elizabethanske teater https://tidsskrift.dk/passage/article/view/111728 <p>Christian Dahl: “Battle scenes in the Elizabethan theater”<br>This article analyses the widespread use of staged battle in Elizabethan theater by use of data extracted from Folger Library’s <em>Digital Anthology of Early English Drama</em>. Between 1576 and 1616, hundreds of battle scenes were produced on English stages but although a substantial number is still available for study, only few scholars have recognized their significance. The many battle scenes both attest to the Elizabethans’ vivid interest in history and to the cultural impact of England’s increasing military engagement on the Continent and in Ireland at the end of Elizabeth’s reign. It is often assumed that histories and battle scenes were particularly popular in the 1590’ies and then fell out of fashion early in the 17th century, but the article demonstrates that staged war remained a frequent occurrence in the first two decades of the century and never disappeared entirely. The article discusses visual and, in particular, acoustic representation of warfare based on the evidence of surviving plays and other documents. The article will also (very) briefly sketch the narrative development of battle scenes that took place in the 1590ies.</p> Christian Dahl ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://tidsskrift.dk/passage/article/view/111728 søn, 23 dec 2018 00:00:00 +0100 Any study of defeat should be closely allied to the study of heuristic defection (III) https://tidsskrift.dk/passage/article/view/111729 <p>Jørgen Michaelsen: "Any study of defeat should be closely allied to the study of heuristic defection (III)"</p> Jørgen Michaelsen ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://tidsskrift.dk/passage/article/view/111729 søn, 23 dec 2018 00:00:00 +0100 Jensen mellem gengangere https://tidsskrift.dk/passage/article/view/111730 <p>Anmeldelse af&nbsp;Stefan Iversen: <em>Den uhyggelige fortælling – unaturlig narratologi og Johannes V.
