Sebastian P. Baden, Aesthetics, art history and media theorist, questions the boundaries between self-defense and the perpetuation of terror and also draws implicit parallels to the recent “War on Terror.”
The artist's aesthetic response to terrorist attacks, hijacking and other human catastrophes arouses the question, why evil and death still are so fascinating. One conclusion may be that within the secure distance between occurrence and spectator one is still fearful – but like Klaus Theweleit says: „When watching television, one never dies".
He has pubilshed the reader "Terminator – the Potential of the End. Coping strategies and Destruction as Creative Processes."
