Emanuel Licha : Striking a Pose Paperback
This is an insightful career overview of multi-disciplinary artist Emanuel Licha.
Best known for his provocative War Tourist series, Emanuel Licha has built a reputation for constructing images that blur the line between real and simulated military conflict.
His films, videos and photographs operate as real-life tours of battle-stricken areas, investigating how traumatic and violent events are looked at and are shown.
Works featuring a mock Iraqi village set up by the American army in the Mohave desert and now operated by Hollywood professionals, or a French military unit that plays both sides in a simulated conflict encourage us to question the images of war that incessantly invade our lives.
This career overview looks at major installations including Mirages (2011), R for Real (2008) and War Tourist (2004-2008).
Born in Montreal, Emanuel Licha lives in Paris where he is associate Professor at the Ecole nationale superieure d'architecture de Paris-La Villette.
He is a member of the Centre for Research Architecture, Goldsmiths College, University of London.
