I chose Guernica by Picasso. And since I'm a huge admirer of Edward Said I add a quote from him that matches the works Guernica and Raqqa. His discourse on imperialism has brought me in flux during my student days.
Rabi Koria, 2016

'Just as none of us is outside or beyond geography, none of us is completely free from the struggle over geography. That struggle is complex and interesting because it is not only about soldiers and cannons but also about ideas, about forms, about images and imaginings.' 
Edward W. Said
