Smithsonian

Uploaded on Sep 24, 2010

Chilean artist Alfredo Jaar considers art’s limitations to represent genocide, conflict, epidemics and famine. His artwork addresses the holocaust in Rwanda, toxic pollution in Nigeria, the disparity of the oil economy and extreme poverty in Angola, gold mining in Brazil and issues related to the border between the U.S. and Mexico. A conversation between Jaar and leading film scholar Manthia Diawara (New York University) follows.
