Show Full Description

We have some understanding of wartime at its peaks: the blasted earth and senseless deaths, the casual barbarity and mass graves. But what happens at the outer edges of battle? Artists have long examined life before and after war, from Homer’s The Iliad and Shakespeare’s Henry V to Katori Hall’s Our Lady of Kibeho and Cormac McCarthy’s The Road.


This forum will gather for the first time four contemporary artists whose work deepens that examination: Iraqi-born artist Wafaa Bilal, Peruvian-born artist Milagros de la Torre, American-born puppet theater artist Dan Hurlin, and Japanese-born playwright/theater artist Chiori Miyagawa.


Moderated by Pulitzer Prize–winning war correspondent Chris Hedges, whose book War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning (2003) was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award for Nonfiction.
