A copy of this print was acquired for the Australian War Memorial collection with the

following description:


The intrusiveness of Second Gulf War imagery into our homes is conveyed in this work.    Rows of televisions are depicted riddled with random bullet holes. Of this work, the artist notes; 'Broadcasting becomes wallpaper invading domestic spaces. Washington, London, Canberra and their commercial channels seem to be on a dirt digging mission to reinforce the need for invasion and engage in an unjustified war...'. Overlaying this image is Arabic text in a Kufic style script, originally developed in Kufa, Iraq. The text, in Arabic, is 'La-lilharb' meaning 'No to the war'. Fatima Killeen was born in Morocco and arrived in Australia in 1994. Many of her works explore the changing relationship between Arab nations, including Iraq, and the Western world since the beginning of the 'war against terrorism'. Her works combine repeated patterns of familiar objects that act as visual signs for larger economic, social or cultural concerns associated with this conflict.
