Francesca Mannocchi

A view on the war, the war of the view

The past twelve months have redefined the world. Afghanistan first, with the Taliban regaining power. Then Ukraine, with the Russian invasion on February 24th. In both cases, the core are always the direct and indirect victims: the women of Afghanistan, a country where education and bodies are once again prohibited, and the civilian victims in Ukraine. The narrators of great events must bring order between the opposite world views and the propaganda and its effects on public opinion. The 2021 Afghan summer and the war in Ukraine have forced new questions on how to look at wars. How similar are the events that are again dividing the world into areas of influence? And how much has our lazy, or worse, proud eyes failed to notice the changes all around us?
