Ahmed: Art And War

Ahmed recently visited the military base at Ft. Bragg, NC. He talks to Dick Gordon about the profound ambivalence he felt about meeting troops there: how it was both difficult on one level and yet humanizing on another. He also talks about returning to the art studio, after five years of not creating any sculpture. Despite wanting to escape the war through art, he finds that the war still haunts his imagination.
