Focusing on human rights, the Chilean-born, New York-based artist addresses political concerns and the relationship between ethics and aesthetics. His œuvre highlights ignored contemporary tragedies, such as genocides, epidemics and famines, and promotes cultural change.
In his works “Searching for Africa in Life” (1996) and “From Time to Time” (2006), Alfredo Jaar displays covers of news magazines to analyze the lack of visibility and the visual clichés about Africa disseminated in Western culture.
The artist’s three-channel video “We Wish to Inform You That We Didn’t Know” (2010), his most recent project on the genocide in Rwanda, acts as an epilogue to “The Rwanda Project, 1994-2000”, a series of twenty-five artworks developed to critique the world’s indifference and inaction to this mass murder.

Site, Sight and Insight. Artist Sanaz Maziani
Site, Sight, and Insight presents a series of lessons on how the visual language of photography functions as a process, one that is ideologically informed and susceptible to undoing. In works that are seductive, revelatory and politically-informed, Mazinani presents differing approaches to the task of foregrounding an understanding of photography as a cultural construct.

Karina Kraenzle’s Bloom series explore and emphasize the ephemeral nature of both material – and image. Created as they are on the surface of a scanner bed, the final images are then printed directly on the back of glass, imparting a haunting contradiction of creation and death, of “blooming” and being held down. These graceful forms are “fixed” to the glass, in a specimen-like quality that is reminiscent, yet differentiated from conventional methods of displaying and viewing natural objects.
