Kurd, artist and veteran

Chronicle by Zoé Cosson

Summary

For the first time, at this year’s Venice Biennale, the Iraqi pavilion, which until recently featured a variety of practices and generations of artists, opted for a single representative, the Kurdish artist Serwan Baran. His exhibition Fatherland consisted of two visceral pieces, haunted by the wars ravaging Iraq for the last 47 years. Like a contemporary Otto Dix, the artist takes radical distance from the war imagery used in the media, illustrating these disasters from his own point of view instead, that of a former soldier.
