Keynote lecture Alfredo Jaar: "It is difficult"

Alfredo Jaar presents all of his lectures under the heading "It is Difficult." He even greets visitors to his website with a quote beginning with these words. Rather than addressing specific content and thereby satisfying our need for information, he encourages us to recognize the seriousness of issues. Individuals whose thinking and work, like his, focus on war, dictatorship, and genocide, try to avoid one thing at all costs: sensationalism.
