Good Art #25. Untitled (Newsweek).

The Sound of Silence at the Nederlands Fotomuseum in Rotterdam is one of the best exhibitions I've seen in the past year. Alfredo Jaar's political, observant and conscience Untitled (Newsweek) looks at the covers of Newsweek as a story of massacre unfolds in Rwanda. The work brings to attention newsworthiness, value and perhaps sadly, humanity. It's best seen, Alfredo's website is the place to go if it's not at a gallery near you.

    It is an intelligent image of main stream media: it insists in taking people's minds away from what is really happening and what needs to be addressed.
