With Collateral Damage, Berger commemorates the lives of civilians killed in the war in Iraq. Each civilian life lost is represented with an “X.” There is an estimated total of 655,000 civilians killed and Berger estimates it will take about eighty pages to reach this number. Each piece is set in an unfinished pine frame. This work is also performed in public as an intervention in an attempt to draw attention to the daily catastrophe and to encourage dialog. An intervention consists of him simply sitting at a table marking pages with X’s.
