A beautiful haunting image juxtaposed with the soothing music of the Saharan nomads’ leaves many implications and contradictions of the piece unresolved; rape/modesty, religious repression/sexual freedom, political ideology/spirituality. This piece honours the female victims of war whose bodies are violated and then depicted throughout Western media as tabloid stories. In today’s world War is as much a media construct as a political one, therefore “Today’s news is literally Tommorrow’s War.”
