Under Fire: invitation to participate


Under Fire is an ongoing art and research project for the analysis of war and political violence. It explores the organization, representation, and materialization of armed conflicts: their structural, symbolic, and affective dimensions.

The next Under Fire will take place during the period 16 October - 10 December 2006, as a project for the International Biennial of Contemporary Art of Seville.

At the core of this project is an online forum. We invite you to subscribe to the forum and participate in the discussion. To subscribe, send a blank email to: underfire-join@underfire.eyebeam.org
