A performance on the high art of making war. “The Automated Sniper” looks into the paradox of warfare and distance on the example of drones. Hetzels work reflects on militainment and warfare; the oscillating relation between the virtual and the real. In “The Automated Sniper” the gamification of violence is brought on stage. The performance is a battle and the stage is the battlefield.
