pirates and emperors
Location: bAghDad, iraque
Team: Ignat Todorov
In his book "Pirates and Emperors, OlD and New" Noam Chomsky reintroduces St. Augustine’s story of a pirate captured by Alexander the Great.
When the Emperor angrily DemanD: "How Dare you molest the seas?", the pirate replied: "How dare you molest the whole world?"
The Emperors manipulate history by dividing and polarizing previously syncretic religious mythology.
The project brings to the light the backward flow of time.
