What if worldwide migration was free…Hvis migration blev fri…

30. april 2020 Jeg har her tidligere her på bloggen skrevet om kunstneren Gudrun Steen-Andersens særdeles innovative installation, Perpetuum Mobile, der inddrager forskere i et tankeeksperiment - "Hvad hvis al migration blev givet fri i verden?" - som de så besvarer i korte videoer. Det var 2019. I marts i år blev de samme personer…

Hvad vil ske, hvis al ud- og indvandring blev givet fri worldwide?

Om en tidsvigtig video-baseret kunstinstallation af Gudrun Steen-Andersen i Aarhus 7. juli 2019 Invandring og det fremtidige, blandede, multikulturelle samfund er et af tidens vigtigste spørgsmål - især hvis det kobles sammen med krigen som institution. For dén er jo den største producent af asylsøgende og flygtninge. Billedhuggeren Gudrun Steen-Andersen, der holder til i Aarhus,…

Why is the UN still so important – while it must also be reformed?

Why is the UN still so important - in spite of having had its Charter violated repeatedly during the last 25 years? https://www.facebook.com/obergpeace.artphotographics/videos/287165988441422/ Why should we not - cynically - side with the cynical and powerful countries that want to undermine and marginalise the world's finest organisation with the most Gandhian-like document ever signed by…

Video-rapporter fra Art Basel 2017

Jeg eksperimenterer for tiden med video - såvel vedrørende international politik og fred som foto og anden kunst. De skabes på min iPhone og jeg er fascineret af de muligheder, denne rivende hurtige tekniske udvikling giver os - for både at nyde, lære, skabe kontakter og lave alternativer til de traditionelle medier. Vil derfor lige…

Intellectual nonsense about Syria

There should be a lower intellectual level to the statements by a US Secretary of Defence. There should be a debunking of the unethical behaviour that repeatedly state that there is only a political solution to Syria and continue to use only violence. There should be a discussion about international law here. There should be…

The future of U.S.-Europe relations

"The Debate" with Jim Walsh, MIT and Jan Oberg, TFF Lund, Sweden – May 30, 2017 Last night “The Debate” on PressTV was devoted to the future of European-US relations in the wake of the NATO Summit, President Trump’s words and omissions and the – historic – words, in particular, of Chancellor Angela Merkel immediately…

NATO should be dissolved – 8 arguments

This is TFF Live on Facebook - the live broadcast I do now and then because live broadcasts have a much larger dissemination than articles, images, texts and Youtube videos. You may find more here. I argue why I believe NATO belongs to the past and should have been dissolved when the Soviet Union and…

Discussing Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia

Here I am with my friends Donald, Bibi, Sara and Melania... And speak a little about the stupidity of scapegoating Iran for everything, of giving Saudi Arabia even more weapons - and being bribed by it - of creating the preconditions for more warfare and about the fact that NATO is setting up shop in…

Lost peace and fake news

By Jan Oberg Proud to join "Middle East With Naskah Zada" at her program in New York and talking about the reasons that peace has become so 'unpopular'. Touching also upon international law, the new Cold War and the increasing U.S. involvement in Syria.

“Vittnesrapport från Aleppo, en annorlunda konfliktanalys och vägar till fred i Syrien”

Bakgrund 10-14:e december 2016 vistades Jan Öberg i Aleppo. Med sin unika erfarenhet från staden ifrågasätter han den gängse massmediarapporteringen, argumenterar för…

Discussing NATO with a former U.S. Ass. Sec. of Defence

A 30 min debate about NATO, Ukraine, Crimea, Yugoslavia, Syria the eternal enemy images and the - obsolete - philosophy on which NATO builds. Time for something new, I argue in the debate with former U.S. Assistant Secretary of Defence under Reagon, Mr. Lawrence J. Korb who at the time was in command of 70%…

I wonder about Aleppo…

By Jan Oberg I shot this simple video out of the window on December 13, 2016. I wonder about Aleppo and say #keepfocusonaleppo https://www.facebook.com/janoberg.se/videos/10154246791826787/ © Jan Oberg 2016 Here in the Sheikh Najjar Industrial City outside Aleppo lived and worked 40,000 people. It had 50% of Syria's industrial capacity. Today - after the occupation by…

On Trump endorsing torture

Human rights is not my field but we have to speak up against Trump's personal endorsement of it. This is nothing new, the US has used it all the time. But isn’t it tragic that almost 70 years after torture was prohibited in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, we see 141 countries still using…

Good: EU will honour the deal with Iran

Happy to speak positively about the EU foreign policy chief's commitment to stand by the nuclear deal with Iran - a clear signal also to Trump. That's good - the alternative could very well be war.
