Watching Babylon: The War in Iraq and Global Visual Culture
1stPublisher: RoutledgeFormat: Paperback
This groundbreaking book examines the experience of watching the war against Iraq on television, on the Internet, in print media and in cinema. Looking at the endless stream of images from Iraq requires a new form of visual thinking that highlights the intersection of local and global while recognizing the way in which the war turned images themselves into weapons. Making striking connections between the history and legend of ancient Babylon, the Babylon that is Western modernity and everyday life in the modern suburb of Babylon, New York, Nicholas Mirzoeff explores that part of the ancient which is still present in the modern. Taking cues from Walter Benjamin he illuminates our Western experience of the Iraqi war by focusing on the intersection of past, present and future in a way which is both original and highly compelling.
