Alfredo Jaar - Lament Of The Images

Stommeln Synagogue

Publisher Grass Publishers

ISBN 9783946848127

With his installation for the Stommeln Synagoge, Jaar inquires not only into the increasingly dulling effect of the everyday plethora of images on the individual and society, but also into his own position as a producer of images. "Images are not innocent," as the artist himself has declared. In the process, he repeatedly relies on the medium of light: light as a central element in photography, as a philosophical category, and as a poetic metaphor; light as enlightenment, and void.
