Drones on rugs

Colors Magazine   Guest curated by Lara Fritzsche

Weavers from Afghanistan traditionally incorporte themes from their everyday lives into their rugs.

After 2001, the iconography has been replaced by military features of the United States invasion. And now there are even predator drones on rugs. An image series.
