Artist Alfredo Jaar creates a series of works directly related to the city of Como, Italy. As a visiting professor for the Advanced Course in Visual Arts in Como, Chilean artist Alfredo Jaar developed a workshop and exhibition project exploring new strategies of presentation and re-presentation in the hope of creating new models for public intervention and resistance. Jaar proposed a series of works inspired by Giuseppe Terragni's Casa del Fascio, one of the most iconic examples of modern architecture and the symbol of a crucial historical period.
