“Shoot an Iraqi: Life, Art and Resistance Under the Gun” with Author Wafaa Bilal

August 3, 2010 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm EDT

“Virtual Jihadi” artist returns to Capital Region with new book. Wafaa Bilal braves fear of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and Troy censorship to speak again! Iraqi-American digital artist Bilal’s new book Shoot an Iraqi: Life, Art and Resistance Under the Gun tells the story of the Domestic Tension project that placed him 24/7 on the receiving end of a paintball gun accessible online to a global audience – and what really happened on his infamous visit to Troy last spring. This presentation is co-sponsored by Women Against War.

We are committed to lowering the barriers to access for events at The Sanctuary for Independent Media. For people who are hard of hearing or deaf, blind or low-vision, or whose physical limitations can interfere with a satisfying experience, let us know two weeks in advance so we can make appropriate arrangements.
