Published by Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma.
Edited by Patrik Nyberg, Jari-Pekka Vanhala. Foreword and interview by Pirkko Siitari. Text by Nestor Garcia Canclini, et al. Poem by Adrienne Rich.

Tonight No Poetry Will Serve is the most comprehensive overview of the installations and photographs of Chilean-born, New York–based artist Alfredo Jaar (born 1956). It includes color reproductions of over 44 works, from 1974 to 2014, including such groundbreaking works as "Lament of the Images," "The Silence of Nduwayezu" and "The Sound of Silence." Also covering some of his most celebrated public interventions such as "The Cloud" and "The Skoghall Konsthall" as well as many of his lesser-known but milestone earliest works from Chile, this publication stands as the most encompassing survey yet of Jaar's cross-disciplinary, cross-border practice. Also included is the Adrienne Rich poem after which the exhibition was titled, "Tonight No Poetry Will Serve," an important source of inspiration for the artist.

Alfredo Jaar: La Politique des ImagesAlfredo Jaar: La Politique des Images

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Nicole Schweizer. Text by Griselda Pollock, Jacques Rancière, Nicole Schweizer, Georges Didi-Huberman.

Spanning from the 1970s until today, this compelling new monograph traces the development of the respected Chilean-born, New York-based conceptualist--from his earliest public interventions to his latest installations. Some of the highly political subjects range from the plight of Amazonian gold miners to the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, and there are several previously unpublished works that the artist created in his hometown of Santiago during Pinochet's repressive military dictatorship, as well as numerous works made by collating and rethinking press clippings. Working with public interventions, installations, photography and video, Jaar examines the nature of images and their viewers' relationships to them. His work tackles the very possibility of producing art based on events that we would prefer to ignore, and of creating images in a context characterized both by their over-abundance and, paradoxically, by their invisibility. Texts by art historians Georges Didi Huberman, Griselda Pollock and Nicole Schweizer and philosopher Jacques Rancière.

Alfredo Jaar: The Fire This Time

Public Interventions 1979-2005

Published by Charta.
Essays by Nancy Princenthal and Mary Jane Jacob.

An architect interested in ephemeral structures, a photographer who has grown increasingly suspicious of pictures, Jaar's most telling gesture is to relinquish the camera by placing it, figuratively and sometimes literally, in the public's hands. In other words, Jaar is a master of indirection. And no wonder. His work was shaped at the outset by the need to speak clearly and forcefully against murderous injustice, using language of the most lucid obliquity. Jaar's work declares that daring to connect and participate is our last, best hope.
