Poster of the Week

Iraq Why?

Cedomir Kostovic

Silkscreen, 1993

Springfield, Missouri

March 2010 marks the seventh anniversary of the ongoing war in Iraq. With its simplicity and power, this poster literally stops viewers in their tracks. It simultaneously asks and answers the question, “Iraq, Why?”. Many are surprised to learn that it was produced after the first Gulf War, and not to protest the ongoing second war against Iraq. Unfortunately, both the question and the answer remain the same.
