Book Description:
An architect interested in ephemeral structures, a photographer who has grown increasingly suspicious of pictures, Chilean artist Alfredo Jaar has tested with an uncompromising directness the public's ability to perceive truth. His installation at Documenta in 2002 dispensed with photography entirely in favor of a walk in structure first showing stories in text, followed by a blinding light to represent the inadequacy of images. For over a quarter century, Jaar's installations, combining elements of photography, architecture, and theater, and often featuring documentary backlit transparencies, have explored the complex relationships between developed nations and the so called Third World. By fusing the aesthetic and the ethical, and carefully balancing between preaching and witnessing, he is able to expose poverty and exploitation with humanity instead of stridency. Essays by Nancy Princenthal and Mary Jane Jacob. Paperback, 8.5 x 12 in./152 pgs / 322 color.
