Capriccio is a tableau vivant projection from the new Museum of Military History in Dresden. It combines a pastiche of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century paintings of the museum’s collection in Dresden with the vintage World War II footage. Two actors in carnival costumes ridicule the graveness of all wars. Since this museum also shows the result of the ongoing theaters of war and its destruction of cultural goods, Capriccio is staged as a painting: from the destruction of cultural heritage and the city of Dresden to the Gulf war.
