Berlin

The Kissinger Project

discussion

14.09.2012, 00:00 Uhr

On the occasion of the Alfredo Jaar exhibition “The way it is. An Aesthetics of Resistance,” by the Neue Gesellschaft für Bildende Kunst, the artist and the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights kindly invite you to the presentation of The Kissinger Project.
On September 11th 2012, the artist will unveil his new public intervention realized specifically for Berlin: advertisements urging the arrest of Henry Kissinger will be published in main Berlin newspapers. This project will be the closing event of Alfredo Jaar’s exhibition in Berlin and is part of a series of works the artist realized in the eighties about Henry Kissinger and his role in the military coup in Chile in 1973.  
Mr. Kissinger, who served in different functions in the U.S. government (1969-1977) is one of the main actors responsible for war crimes carried out by the United States and their allies. He was never investigated nor charged for his crimes. On the contrary: he is still welcomed and respected in Germany and elsewhere.
The advertisements will be released in seven languages (German, English, Spanish, Portuguese, Tetum (East Timor), Laotian and Khmer). These languages, except German, correspond to the countries or continents where his crimes took place. We invite you to a panel discussion with Alfredo Jaar (New York), Frank Wagner (NGBK, Berlin) and Wolfgang Kaleck (ECCHR, Berlin) about this project and the relationship between art and politics. The panel discussion will be followed by a reception.
