Razor wire 2.0: after 5 years
The update to the online game Žicar, which we created on the occasion of the 3rd anniversary of the wire on our southern border, comes five years after the government of Miro Cerar started laying it. The governments of Marjan Šarec and Janez Janša continued with hostile policies toward refugees and made it even more difficult for them to cross the border. Such inhumane measures do not in any way reduce the number of refugees, rather, they contribute to a higher number of victims. Slovenian refugee policy makes us all culprits in their deaths. As long as the wire is standing, we all have blood on our hands!
In media res
In media res is a podcast with Boris Vezjak, focused on analyzing political and media discourses. Every week, Tadej and Boris discuss selected topics for about half an hour, scrutinizing particular comments and media responses, exposing rhetorical fallacies and media spins, propaganda tactics, and critically reflecting on public discourse. The podcast is available on all major podcasting apps, on YouTube, as well as on the In media res blog.
This campaign, developed in partnership with CNVOS, was conceived as a response to the Ministry of Culture’s hostile move toward the residents of Metelkova 6. The Ministry’s announcement that these non-governmental and civil society organizations would be evicted, illustrates Minister Simoniti’s desire to discipline culture and the arts. His views may be problematic, but they are in perfect harmony with the government’s belligerent policy towards the autonomous parts of society. Helping the minister to permanently rub out the disturbing elements from society, we brought this dark vision to its bitter end.
Less than fair
On a cold December evening, social networks were flooded with outraged posts reacting to a memo from Hofer banning homeless people from selling their newspaper in front of its outlets. In doing so, they communicated to an already vulnerable social group that they are unwanted and should become invisible – just to provide their customers a holiday shopping experience without any bad conscience. We strongly oppose this kind of segregation, so called on the public to boycott Hofer and help the homeless.
