1997. United States of America. 5’
The video shows two men playing chess; Radovan Karadzic and Radco Mladic, the psychiatrist and the general. Silence is interrupted by a voice with a heavy accent. Karadzic is a psychiatrist, a poet and the former Bosnian Serb leader. Mladic is a general and the former commander of the Bosnian Serb Army. The two men together are accused of having designed and ordered most of the atrocities that took place in Bosnia. The video juxtaposes classic war strategy, greed and vanity with consequences in reality by suggesting horror through denial.
