a tough soldier
I served 19 months in the Iranian army in the
artillery forces in Tehran, I worked for 19 months in McDonald’s Wyck in Maastricht. McDonald’s was the only place in Maastricht which got me a work permit to work as a “foreigner”. The installation built-out of fries boxes collected from McDonald’s was then an abstract reflection on the similarities of these two oppressive mechanisms, one in the Iranian army and the other in a ‘free’ liberal country as The Netherlands.
