From Europe to Middle East via Sub-Saharan Africa, ABSCHEU have been watching some of the most determined acts of violence. Studying how bloodthirsty groups wash their hands by adorning their motivation with divine command. Seeing zealots justify murderous wrath by invoking their favorite sacred book whenever necessary. A self-proclaimed court where justice is selectively rendered. A confusing purgatory where hatred is given a legitimacy. A sneaky trickery designed to mislead one's enemies in the maze of one's lies. Pretens is the exploration of that system from various perspectives. Pretense is an unquestionable judgment before men – definitely not before that thing they call god.
