SIMULATING IRAQ (United States, 2008-2010)

Special sites which copy the war zones in Iraq and Afghanistan have been created on military bases in the United States. The local architecture, objects and costumes are all imitated, and American soldiers and civilians play the roles of Iraqis and Afghans. While these sites are intended as imitations, according to Beckett they take on a reality of their own. In any case, for the soldiers they are part of their preparation for the real war in which they will shortly find themselves.
