Serious Personal Conviction – on measurements of conscience (2020)

About this exposition

en
In Serious Personal Conviction – on measurements of conscience, we encounter two groups of people interviewed on different occasions discussing consciousness and ethics in relation to the military system. One of the groups are men that during the 1970s and ‘80s chose to perform non-combatant service and now reflect on the choices they made as 18-year olds. The other group consists of young people of today trying to answer several questions regarding the right to take another person's life. The exposition is part of the artistic research project Refuse to Kill – stories of the conscientious objectors. Our methodology involves a montage of a large number of voices collectively collected through statistical surveys, open-call procedure via advertising in newspapers and the internet, interviews and searches in archives.

I videoverket Allvarlig personlig övertygelse möter vi två grupper av människor som vid olika tillfällen intervjuats kring samvete och etik i relation till militärtjänstgöring. Den ena gruppen består av äldre män som sökte och beviljades vapenfri tjänst under 1970 och 80-talet och som ser tillbaka på ett vägval de genomförde i 18-årsåldern. Den andra gruppen består av unga människor idag som försöker besvara ett antal frågeställningar kring rätten att ta någon annans liv. Expositionen är en del av det konstnärliga forskningsprojektet Vägra Döda – historier om de vapenfria männen. Vår metod inbegriper ett montage av ett stort antal röster som samlats in kollektivt genom statistiska undersökningar, open-call förfarande, genom annonsering i tidningar och på internet, intervjuer och sökningar i arkiv.
