The show is titled "Artists Against the War". I think that almost five years into the thing it might be a bit late, no? I wouldn't be surprised if The Gap came out with a line of anti-war t-shirts. I don't think there has been much discussion about what art can realistically do to change the direction of a war. Maybe we can do that here.
For me, the question is, what do we do now? What does being "against" the war mean. Does it mean leaving the country and letting all these ethnic groups fight it out? That seems kind of inhumane to me. My hope is that the innocent people of Iraq are protected by someone.
