    Alfredo Jaar is a Chilean-born artist, architect and filmmaker who lives and works in New York. Working with different media, he examines the nature of images and our relationship to them. Crucial questions explored in his work tackle the possibility of producing art based on events that we would prefer to ignore, and of creating images characterized contextually both by their overabundance and, paradoxically, their invisibility closely linked current events, but taking the opposite stance to sensationalist reports. This book covers a wide selection of Jaars emblematic installations and press works since the mid-1980s, and includes an illuminating text by Okwui Enwezor.
