Jean-Christian Bourcart

In New York State in 2005, the photographer and video artist Jean-Christian Bourcart projected photographs of Iraqi war victims on houses, churches and supermarkets. Bourcart took the images from the internet, and most had been taken by soldiers. The artist was not so much interested in levelling accusations, but rather in projecting images of the reality of war into the peaceful, clean environment of the country that was waging this war in a far away country. In 1993, Bourcart had produced a series of black and white photographs on the siege of Sarajevo.
