Untitled (Chicago #1), Chicago, 2006, C-type print, 47"x60"  


Everything that happened, happened here first, in rehearsal. The invasion of Beirut, the first and second Intifada, the Gaza withdrawal, the Battle of Falluja; almost every one of Israel's major military tactics in the Middle East over the past three decades was performed in advance here in Chicago, an artificial but realistic Arab town built by the Israeli Defence Force for urban combat training.

Chicago was published by SteidlMACK in conjunction with a solo exhibition at The Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, with support from Arts Council England.
