This chapter presents a dialogue between David Joselit and Faisal Devji that focuses on locally produced jihadist media intended for distribution via the global media network. The two debate and discuss the unlikely correlations between “terrorist” media strategies and video art practice, interrogating the production, circulation, and visibility of such media on a worldwide network and global screens through a theory of the ethics of images. For Devji, it is in its visualization that the local actions of jihad, disseminated worldwide through media, become influential events.
