Green Zone Red Zone, the Hague

In August 2002 President Bush signed into US law the American Servicemembers Protection Act, which authorizes the use of all necessary means (implying military force) to liberate citizens of the US or its allies being held by the International Criminal Court in The Hague, giving rise to its nickname as the ‘Hague Invasion Act.’

Though it might seem far removed from Guantánamo Bay, Diego Garcia or Bagram Airbase, the Hague has thus also become an exceptional space in the war on terror (in the legislative realm, at least, though the wider intimidating effects of such legislation are not to be underestimated).

Could the separation between red and green zones, as a result of a catastrophe, occur in The Hague, and, if it happened, what would be the consequences?

Whereas we cannot really say if it could happen, we have tried to explore in a number of scenarios how it could come about. In order to do this, we have chosen three cataclysmic events (Ethnic Revolt, Revolt of the Poor and Flood) and developed scenario’s on how these events would influence the creation of green zones and red would in The Hague.  Using the ‘Homeland National Security in Urban Areas’ regulations, with its different alert levels, we envisioned how the urban structure of The Hague will be transformed following a threat. We speculated which areas will be secured and which not; which will be fenced in and fenced off and painted the city in Green and Red Zones. The scenarios are based on a snapshot of the present situation in the city to raise questions on issues of equality, freedom, and prosperity of the different communities that inhabit the city.

The project was part of a larger project called Borders curated by Robert Klujiver for the Gemak, art center in The Hague.
