21 Days to Baghdad/Chicago


21 Days to Baghdad: The Inside Story of the War in Iraq is the title of the Time news campaign that ran shortly after President Bush declared an end to major combat in 2003. Unfortunately, this “commemoration of the historic battle to liberate Baghdad” was left incomplete.

21 Days to Baghdad/Chicago is a series of drawings that reflect the space of absence left by lives lost and provides fragments of what was omitted from the original news campaign: the ongoing experience of war that lives on physically and psychologically in individuals, communities, and landscapes from Baghdad to Chicago.
