“In my experience, the two most significant features of war are horror and absurdity,” says Christoph Bangert. Following his examination, in his critically acclaimed book War Porn (Kehrer 2014), of the way our society deals with horrific images, in his new work hello camel Christoph Bangert confronts us with the absurdity of war.
