Generation Kill – Offspring #1

Stefan Prins

‘This is a war fought by the first playstation generation’, these are the words of Evan Wright in his book Generation Kill in which he reports about his experiences during the 2003 Iraq invasion. A few years later smartphones, webcams and social media had a huge influence on real-time, multi-angled global transmission of the Arab revolutions in 2011. Both influenced Stefan Prins to write his composition Generation Kill in which he questions how we are desensitized about videogame violence and real-life violence when it can take place with remote control, from our comfort zone.
