Thoughts on ‘Terror’

I had noted down a few points that some of the work at The C/O Berlin gallery had raised about the idea of how terror and war is reported.

Thought it was quite interesting.

The term terror, Terrorism and Terrorists has become a term that never seems to allude the news. The term has evolved after the likes of ‘war on terror’ was adopted by Bush as this seems to create the idea that we are fighting a war against an emotion a feeling, detaching the more real idea of what is happening and masking the reality of physical damage and destruction war causes to thousands of innocent lives across the globe every day.

Below I’ve listed a couple of sites that might be of interest.
