Afghan-American artist Aman Mojadidi discusses the burden and inspiration he gets from his two identities.  Mojadidi creates thought-provoking artwork that explores jihad, gangsterism, consumers and corruption in modern Afghanistan in a controversial and often humorous way.

What impact do you think artwork like this has on both American’s and Afghan’s interpretation of the crisis in the middle east? Do you find that you agree or disagree with the work that Mojadidi is doing?
