An MP3 podcast recording of the lecture delivered at the RSA reflecting on the contradictions witnessed during two visits to Afghanistan.

In November last year David Cotterrell spent three weeks with the Royal Army Medical Corps and Royal Marine Commandos for a residency supported by the Wellcome Trust at Camp Bastion in Helmand Province.

This military perspective was recently complimented by a second trip to Afghanistan, this time through civilian eyes, on an Arts & Ecology residency in Kabul, Afghanistan with Turquoise Mountain. During his time in Kabul he had the opportunity to engage and work with artists, craft makers and art students both at Kabul University and Turquoise Mountain's Centre for Afghan Art and Architecture in Kabul.
