Multidisciplinary artist Michael Rakowitz is working with curator Elizabeth Thomas to create a participatory performance project involving American veterans from the Iraq War and the Iraqi refugee community called A Desert Home Companion. The work uses the conventions of radio to create a surreal world of “Radio Baghdad” using recorded elements of the live performance in addition to studio and field-based recordings.
