"It Is Difficult," a talk by Alfredo Jaar, internationally celebrated Chilean artist, architect and filmmaker
Tuesday, November 27 at 4:30 p.m.
Humanities Center in Stokes Hall, room 102 at Haverford College
Free and open to the public
Alfredo Jaar explores the aesthetics of trauma and confronts the failure of representation in relation to human suffering and atrocity in works such as The Rwanda Project (1994-2000), his well-known photo-based installation about the Rwanda genocide, and The Cloud (2000), a performance project about the loss of life associated with the US-Mexico border crisis. Self-described as an “architect creating art,” Jaar was a Guggenheim fellow in 1985 and a MacArthur Fellow in 2000.
In conjunction with ICPRH 204/PEACH 204 "Picturing War: Goya to Abu Ghraib," taught by Professor Carol Solomon.
