‘Terrorists’ plays with the propaganda of the word and addresses the loss of personal freedom. Every foreign citizen traveling on transit through the US has to provide a fingerprint scan. ‘Terrorists’ shows fingerprints with the faces of Nelson Mandela, Osama Bin Laden and an unknown individual with the word ‘Terrorist’ written underneath. To name someone a terrorist is very subjective. For most people, Mandela was a legend, a fighter for the ANC, a Nobel Peace Prize laureate and President of South Africa, however, for the apartheid regime he most certainly was a terrorist who got locked up for decades. For the western world Bin Laden was a terrorist but for others he was not. In Central America one could buy T-Shirts with his face, these people were not Islamists but appreciated anyone who had ‘pissed-off’ the US. The borders between ‘good’ and ‘evil’ are not clear and introducing a fingerprint scan might label an average man a terrorist.
