That an exhibition of Iraqi-born, Chicago-based artist Wafaa Bilal‘s video game “Virtual Jihadi” should turn into a case of censorship is, sadly, not much of a surprise. That it should take place at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, which not only hosts a high-powered electronic arts program but also will soon be home to a state-of-the-art media arts production and presentation complex, is the real kicker.
