In Desert Dreams a pink cloud spreads over UN-Inspectors, insurgent Arab militia, a CNN war correspondent, U.S. troops, Iraqi suicide bombers, Osama Bin Ladin, Islamic extremist guards and Saddam Hussein and transforms them into protagonists of a porno film. Olav Westphalen provocatively replaces the media language of political journalism with the equally commercial language of pornography. In so doing, he succeeds in exposing the appropriation of media images for the ends of political representations, a customary practice of the ubiquitous infotainment industry
