  • Greetings from Iraq

    Postcards, 10 motifs, edition of 200, 2012 /// They are not the top ten sights in Iraq. Just a small part, which is reserved to combatants and unfortunate residents. The exhibited postcards show motifs based on snapshots from American soldiers, which were processed and finished as postcard pictures. Places like Babylon, Bagdad or Ur accommodate historical treasures of human history. Now they serve as places of idleness of the soldiers. Up-to-date pictures are almost only available through the military context. The places are built by the Sumerian, but also by Saddam Hussein himself. Hurt or destroyed in many wars. The Iraqi Diaspora is one of the biggest in the world, but without danger of life they can't visit their homeland or the second generation discover the country of their ancestors.
