How does the politics of citizenship change in war times? At the BG conference “Friendly Fire” the architectural historian Felicity Scott looked for answers. Her Silicon Valley research sheds new light on the emergence of the military-entertainment complex and the states of exception in networked societies. Moderated by Valentina Pellizzer, a Sarajevo-based activist also known as hvale, this public talk reflected the crises of citizenship in the context of war. “Critiques of the apparatuses of domination and power and those helping to uphold them – especially the police – can be hijacked by powerful players,” as Felicity Scott noted when discussing alternative models of citizenship. The session was recorded at the ZK/U on November 4, 2017, and can be listened to by pressing the play button above.
