9/11 AND ITS REMEDIATIONS IN POPULAR CULTURE AND ARTS IN AFRICA. Ed. by Heike Behrend and Tobias Wendl. LIT Verlag, Zurich, 2015. 142 pp. with 107 ills. (82 col.). 27 x 21 cm. ISBN 9783643906274 In English.
Publisher's description: 9/11 has been described as an "absolute event" that radically changed the course of history. It reinforced the opposition between Christian and Muslim worlds and led to the declaration of a unilateral war against a global network of terrorists that broke up the classical definition of war as a war between nation states. Yet, 9/11 also created responses in parts of the world that were not directly involved in the unfolding "war on terror." In Africa, local conflicts were re-mapped into an emerging new geography of anger that also reflects the effects of marginalization in a globalized world. The essays of this volume explore local remediations of 9/11 in African popular culture (posters, photographs, videos, cartoons, etc.) and visual arts. They give evidence of the fundamental ambivalence towards the event of 9/11 and provide insights into the various ways distant conflicts are translated into intense proximities.
