Ein Ausflug zu den Identitäten der Adriaküste

 

Plan Vigipirate is France’s national security alert system. Created in 1978 by President Valéry Giscard d’Estaing.

Until 2014 the system defined four levels of threats represented by five colors: white, yellow, orange, red, scarlet. The levels called for specific security measures, including increased police or police/military mixed patrols in subways, train stations and other vulnerable locations. In February 2014 the levels were simplified to ‘vigilance’ and ‘attack alert’.

Aleksander Velišček produced this work during his residence at Cité internationale des Arts.  

During his stay in in the City the November 2015 Paris attacks took place.
