Our view and grasp of images is shaped by our particular cultural preconceptions, knowledge, experiences and beliefs, which constitute a singular vision of the world. As a result, no image can ever be understood in one single way, as it is viewed through the kaleidoscope of human perception. And yet, every day, we see hundreds, if not thousands of images on TV, on the Internet, on social networks, in the street and in archives, and we take for granted that our view of them is “accurate”. Some of these quotidian images, representing situations of war, are replayed here in installation form, asking us to question our view of “other” and “elsewhere”.
