From the Introduction: "Most of the images of the American-Vietnam War have been provided by the West: television reports, news photography, Hollywood movies, even abstract and conceptual art. Images of 'the other side' in the war, the North Vietnamese, are rarely seen. This exhibition aims to redress that imbalance by focusing on a select group of rarely seen 'combat art' images made by North Vietnamese artists during the war." "'Vietnam: Behind the Lines' is not a historical account of the American-Vietnam War, nor is it a balanced display of the art of protest art created by both sides during or in response to the conflict. It is an exhibition of images, part propaganda, part combat art and part intimate life sketches, by talented North Vietnamese professional and amateur artists. For the most part these pictures were produced behind the battle lines, in pauses between bouts of action, while others were crafted in the relative safety of Hanoi. Some viewers may be surprised by the absence of violent images of war, death and destruction. Real cruelty and brutality by both sides in the war are entirely unrepresented here. Despite the fact that millions died in the fighting. . ."
