This issue's Curated Spaces features “The Battle for Hearts and Minds,” a series of photomontages by Bosnian artist Nebojs̆a S̆erić Shoba — known as ”Shoba” — in which war is interrogated as an extension of global capitalism through military intervention. In these images, soldiers engaged in combat appear encumbered by shopping bags bearing the designer logos of top European and American brand names. Also featured are stills from the computer animation “Let There Be Light,” which highlights the perceived predominance of the United States in determining social relations on a global scale.
