"I use a lot of repetition. And it becomes a filmic way of talking because as you put the same image after the other, even though it’s the exact identical image, everyone sees something changing from one image to the next."
How do contemporary artists engage politics, inequality, and the many conflicts that besiege the world today? How do artists use their work to discuss or oppose misery, turmoil, and injustice? The "Art in the Twenty-First Century" documentary “Protest” explores these questions in the work of the artists Jenny Holzer, Alfredo Jaar, An-My Lê, and Nancy Spero.
