The Automated Sniper reflects upon the oscillation between real and virtual, upon the “ludicisation” of violence, when wars are increasingly fought at a distance, with drones; when looking into a monitor is equivalent to killing.

“The work looks into the paradox of warfare and distance on the example of drones. Two performers are literally being shot into pieces. This performance is a battle and the stage is the battlefield”. (Julian Hetzel)
