Since 1979, artist, architect and filmmaker Alfredo Jaar has worked to demonstrate the relationships of power and inequality in our society. Through manipulated photographs and a wide variety of mediums, he provokes a deeper questioning of our values and our perception of political and social realities. His works engage us in a process of identification or non-identification with the subjects he represents, to challenge our political sense and, simultaneously, force us to become more aware of global political issues.
