ATTACK! Art and War in the Media Age / Kunst und Krieg in den Zeiten der Medien

War is the major social issue that has pushed all others to the side
since shortly after the turn of the millennium. Those who believed that
more peaceful times would follow the end of the Cold War were forced to
learn a lesson: War remains the father of all things, even though its
appearance, its methods, its aims and its language of imagery are
constantly changing.
