Zulfikar Ali Bhutto
This Means War 2
3 April 2016

Zulfikar Ali Bhutto uses diverse media to critique complex sociopolitical topics. His work This Means War 2 employs repetitive found video footage from the India Pakistan war of 1972 to confront the audience’s contextual viewing position here at residence in San Francisco. Contemporary Western media is saturated with images of brown men marching in the streets for what is often described as a radicalised and dangerous Islamic world. Ali Bhutto’s thoughtful presentation of this archival imagery allows it to take on new meanings, tending to disturb an otherwise comfortable audience.
