Hello Beautiful!

Wafaa Bilal

Wafaa Bilal is an Iraq-born artist, now living in Chicago. He may be best known for Domestic Tension, an installation he created last year where he locked himself in a gallery space and invited visitors to a website to shoot paintballs at him. Wafaa was shot at more than 60,000 times that month.

Wafaa sits down with host Justin Kaufmann to share the experience of that long month, plus his amazing journey from Iraq to Chicago, with a few stops along the way.
