Eagerly supported by ‘united’ Germany, the 1999 NATO campaign against FR Yugoslavia was the first in history using exclusively air strikes. Accordingly, it was based on the “ethical” premise that this was a clean humanitarian intervention without any collateral damage – and certainly not a war. Found inside a plane that was shot during the air strikes, the video was processed by the art activism collective Kuda.org (including Zoran Pantelic) for BG’s “Black Box East” project for public access. It documents the plane’s cockpit electronics: the basic graphical interface and the voice communication between pilots. After each impact, the pilot is calm, and the only thing that indicates his personal drama is his breathing – a sign of the mission’s false (“ethical”) premise.
