The Congo Tribunal

The Congo Tribunal examines the causes and backgrounds of the Congo War in a unique transmedia art project.

For more than 20 years an inexplicable Civil War is turning a territory as big as western Europe into hell on earth. Triggered by the Rwandan genocide in 1994, the Congo War, also called the “Third World War”, has claimed six million lives. Many observers not only see in it a fight about political predominance in Central Africa, but also one of the most decisive economic battles for the share in the era of globalization. The reason for the continuance of this war are no longer based on ethnic differences rather than raw materials for technology which are essential for the 21st Century. Nowhere else in the world, the superposition of global interests of the great national economies, local power claims, the colonial past and the post-colonial present are more exemplary than in this crises region. Will the future order of the global community be decided here?

Milo Rau’s “The Congo Tribunal” examines the causes and backgrounds to this, so far biggest and bloodiest economic war in human history in a unique and stunningly transmedia art project.
