Show synopsis For most outsiders, the Bosnian War was played out in the brief, flickering images of television news. But another set of images played an active role in this war, moulding public sentiment and calling attention to the plight of the Bosnian people. For three years, Bosnians plastered the walls of their towns with messages of anger, frustration, desperation, resistance and hope. These images, the focus of this book, are juxtaposed with the diverse works of propaganda that served the practitioners of ethnic cleansing. "Evil Doesn't Live Here" presents this visusl battle to the rest of the world. Daoud Sarhandi and Alina Boboc have gathered over 180 of the most dramatic wartime posters, largely created by Bosnian artists and graphic designers at the height of the war. Emotive on both political and artistic levels, they provide a harrowing account of the war and put a human face on the conflict. A portion of the proceeds of the book will be donated to victims of the Bosnian War.
