Dr Kit Messham-Muir's Double War: Shaun Gladwell, visual culture and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq is the first published sustained critical investigation into the artwork of Shaun Gladwell, one of Australia's leading contemporary artists.

Messham-Muir, an art theorist and Museologist, focuses on the psychological and emotional dimensions of visualising war. He is also a member of Newcastle's Centre for the History of Violence.

Messham-Muir was given privileged access to Gladwell's studio throughout the development of Gladwell's work. Double War's six chapters explore Gladwell's war artist works, as well as the broader political and cultural contexts of the War on Terror.

Gladwell is known for his video installation works, has represented Australia at the 2009 Venice Biennale and was appointed as an Australian Official War Artist in late 2009. He spent a month in Afghanistan and the Middle East with the Australian Defence Force, and drew upon this experience to produce a large body of paintings, video and photographic works.
