Proposal Title: IVVXX - Iraqi Victims Value Exchange Index , 12/11/2007, Mixed media

Proposal Synopsis: How much costs an Iraq citizen? It is possible - in some way - to establish the value in money of one human life? It seems that, for the United States and regarding the civilians in Iraq, this complex ethic question becomes easy to solve. The Iraqi citizens have no value for them and in the case the USA administration assumes their responsibility in the killing, its maximum value is around 2000 dollars! This value changes in depending by the involved people and the flow of the political situation in Iraq. This project wants to deepen this aspect, trying to fix a value index similar to the stock exchange ones.
