0 Reviews
A re-encounter with Chilean audiences after an absence of twenty-five years. An anthology of works better known to the rest of the world than to his native country. A frank, demanding dialogue with a new public and a new generation of intellectuals. Jaar's work evolves from project to project, as he continually shapes and renews his poetic thinking on such themes such as: the contemporary status of images, the role of artists and intellectuals in society, and an ethical imperative expressed in an aesthetics of resistance.
