Tonight the group exhibition Fire and Forget. On Violence, curated by Ellen Blumenstein and Daniel Tyradellis, opens at KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin. “Fire and forget” comes from military jargon, and is a term for weapon systems that are no longer used in direct combat with an enemy but are launched from a safe distance. The exhibition takes the military expression as the starting point for an examination of the conventional ideas about war and force. It is oriented towards the most visible agent of violence: weapons. Participating artists are Marina Abramović and Ulay, Luis Camnitzer, Mircea Cantor, Chto Delat, Harun Farocki, Damien Hirst, Emily Jacir, Korpys/Löffler, Kris Martin, Ana Mendieta, Pipilotti Rist, Martha Rosler, Santiago Sierra, Javier Téllez, and Gillian Wearing, among others.
