USA: poster against torture in Iraq

Anti torture in Iraq poster from New York

From Art for a change blog:

Unidentified artists with a small budget produced the “iRaq” poster – a brilliant detournment of Apple Computer’s portable MP3 player ad campaign.

The subversive poster features the infamous image of an Iraqi prisoner tortured by American jailers at Abu Ghraib prison, with a subhead that reads, “10,000 volts in your pocket, guilty or innocent.”

The poster was designed by a New York artist’s collective whose members prefer anonymity.

Calling themselves Copper Greene, after the code name used by the Pentagon to describe its program of prisoner abuse in Iraq, these nameless artists succeeded in turning a multi-million dollar ad campaign on its head.

This is an Eminem/Iraq remix video.
