Chir 3ar - a war commemoration


To commemorate the onset of the Lebanese war on April 13, I just did a new series based on the posters of the civil war and I haphazardly pasted them on one another after reworking them, the result is a 32-piece series which makes bedfellows out of yesterday's enemies (mind you only 10 are shown here). The title of the series is "chi 3ar" (which is a play on words on "chi3ar" or slogan and "chi 3ar" which means something shameful). Let us think how all these promises got dissolved into the ether and how these enemies of yesteryear have grown into allies today - at the expense of the dead and the "collateral damages".
