Alfredo Jaar - The Politics of Images

opening_ 14/03/2017, tuesday, 19-22h
exhibition_ 15/03/2017 til 29/04/2017

The starting point of the exhibition is the installation The Sound of Silence (2006), “a theater built for a single image” (Jacques Rancière). In One Million Points of Light (2005), that was shot off the coast of Angola, in Luanda, it was taken while facing the ocean directly towards Brazil, in memory and homage to the 14 million slaves sent from Angola to Brazil. The photograph is presented in a light box installed on the wall alongside postcards that are free for visitors to take.
