Theater of Operations: The Gulf Wars 1991–2011

Edited with preface by Peter Eleey, Ruba Katrib. Foreword by Kate Fowle. Text by Zainab Bahrani, Jean Baudrillard, Serge Daney, Nuha al-Radi, Riverbend, Rijin Sahakian, Nada Shabout, McKenzie Wark.

How artists have examined the legacies of American-led military engagement in Iraq

The 1991 Gulf War marked the start of a lengthy period of American-led military involvement in Iraq that led to more than a decade of sanctions, the 2003 Iraq War, and ongoing repercussions throughout the region. Though the Iraq War officially ended in 2011, artists have continued to examine these conflicts and their impacts. Theater of Operations: The Gulf Wars 1991–2011 charts the effects of these wars on cultural production in Iraq and throughout its diasporas, as well as responses to the wars in the West, revealing how this period was defined by unsettling intersections of spectacularized violence and new imperialisms. The exhibition features more than 80 artists and collectives, including Afifa Aleiby, Dia al-Azzawi, Thuraya al-Baqsami, Paul Chan, Harun Farocki, Guerrilla Girls, Thomas Hirschhorn, Hiwa K, Hanaa Malallah, Monira Al Qadiri, Nuha al-Radi and Ala Younis.

This catalog features newly commissioned essays by Zainab Bahrani, Rijin Sahakian, Nada Shabout and McKenzie Wark alongside texts by exhibition co-curators Peter Eleey and Ruba Katrib. Excerpts from period journals by artist Nuha Al-Radi and anonymous blogger Riverbend detail life in Iraq over two decades of war, sanctions and occupation. Reprinted essays from Jean Baudrillard and Serge Daney provide additional context, delving into the effects of the conflict upon media and visual culture.

Jason Farago

[A} powerful view of the cultural impact of the Persian Gulf and Iraq wars with which American art institutions too rarely engage.

Art In America

William S. Smith

a primary document of a catastrophe three decades past. It is also...a searing image of the present.

The best works in "Theater of Operations" dont address the war directly so much as have it in the background
