Errazuriz illustrates the reality of war in a public piece titled, American Kills. These eye opening stats just go to show you what’s hidden from huge media outlets. PTSD and other post war trauma is nasty.
‘American Kills’ by Chilean-born New York based artist Sebastian Errazuriz is a public
installation showcasing the suicide rates of US soldiers. after searching on official
war sites on the internet, he accidentally found out that 2 times more American soldiers
had died in 2009 by committing suicide than those killed during that same year in the
war in iraq; an alarming comparison that errazuriz had personally never read or
heard about before.
