War on Terror

In the media, particularly after 9/11, Afghan and Muslim people are shown only in connection to violence and war. In this body of work, I clipped pictures from newspapers reporting on The War On Terror, edited and reprinted them to challenge the one-dimensional representation of Afghan and Muslim people. For instance in Party on Afghanistan  series, 2010, I noticed that women were missing from reports from the region. I imagined them interrupting and added them by cutting their silhouettes from the picture and paper.
