Iraqi Artists Are Back on the World Stage

Jamal Penjweny grew up with war, having been born in Iraqi Kurdistan in the early 1980s.

The photographs in his series “Saddam Is Here” show the psychological toll that conflict and dictatorship can take, even years after the fact. In his images, Iraqis in their everyday environments hide their faces behind a picture of Saddam Hussein, a nod to the long-gone dictator’s lingering presence in Iraqi society.

The theme of everyday life being lived despite extraordinary circumstances links Penjweny’s series and the works of ten other artists participating in the exhibit"Welcome to Iraq" at the 55th Venice Biennale.

The Biennale is one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious international art fairs—88 countries are hosting national pavilions this year. But “Welcome to Iraq” marks the first time in over three decades that artists living and working in Iraq are being represented. (2011 saw an exhibit by Iraqi artists in exile.) The pieces that follow will all be on display through November as part of “Welcome to Iraq” at the Biennale’s Iraq Pavilion.

Okay. If you say so. Bush was a dumbass but he didn’t do that.

You don’t know as much as I don’t know. He could easily do it, or Bin laden could do it, or just another crazy person. Just the one or the ones who did it are the ones who know. You can be brainwashed as much as I can be brainwashed or Iraqui people can be brainwashed at any moment. 

All I know, is all the info I searched, all the documentaries I’ve seen, one who blame Iraq and ones who blame Bush, and the resolution I had is that Bush along, with several accomplices did it. I even think, cause I saw several proofs online and on documentaries that Bush and Bin Laden knew each other even before 9-11, that all of this was planned by the two of them.

And I know too, that no one deserves to die, not the Usa soldiers nor, the inoccent Iraqui and Pakistani people who are bombarded every day.

“Remember, the people who know me are the ones who are free to live and love without any agenda.”

Is that what it means to be a Christian?” It sounded kind of stupid as Mack said it, but it was how he was trying to sum everything up in his mind.

Who said anything about being a Christian? I’m not a Christian.”

The idea struck Mack as odd and unexpected and he couldn’t keep himself from grinning. “No, I suppose you aren’t.”

They arrived at the door of the workshop. Again Jesus stopped. “Those who love me come from every system that exists. They were Buddhists or Mormons, Baptists or Muslim, Democrats, Republicans, and many who don’t vote or are not part of any Sunday morning religious institutions. I have followers who were murderers and many who were self-righteous. Some were bankers and bookies, Americans and Iraquis, Jews and Palistinians. I have no desire to make them Christian, but I do want to join them in their transformation into sons and daughters of my Papa, into my brothers and sisters, into my Beloved.”

Does that mean,” asked Mack, “that all roads will lead to you?”

Not at all,” smiled Jesus as he reached for the door handle to the shop. “Most roads don’t lead anywhere. What it does mean is that I will travel any road to find you.”
