based on the performative installation in the P74 gallery, Ljubljana
photography: paula roush and Dejan Habicht

"the highly politicised artist paula roush visited the gallery p74 for the exercise sos:ok (save our souls: zero killings). her company msdm (mobile strategies of display and mediation) staged the largest ever simulation of a terror attack in central slovenia to test the readiness of its emergency services. policemen, firefighters and ambulance personnel were involved in the mock chemical gas attack, which was held in the art gallery in ljubljana, the largest city in slovenia.

during the exercise, around 400 volunteers from the army and red cross pretended to be victims of a nerve gas attack and underwent a decontamination procedure, which involved having their clothes cut off and entering a special disinfecting shower, with the more seriously injured taken to hospital.
a l jubljana police spokesman said the exercise was as realistic as possible."

My work explores the intersection of open culture and publishing technologies. My recent publication projects have been exhibited at the P74 gallery in Ljubljana [Split-index: a time/space dislocation and Split-screen: a time/space dislocation), Sput-&-nik gallery, Porto (classop: papéis varios/varied papers) and Museu da Cidade, Lisboa (jornal fingido/ fake newspaper). I teach courses on art and media theory, artists publications, self-publishing and the impact of technology in photographic publishing practices. I also run the weblog for the photobook module I teach at the London South Bank University, part of the Digital Photography Programme.
