El poder de una idea: Un espacio de tiempo con Alfredo Jaar y Luis Pérez-Oramas offers a privileged window into the minds, shared explorations, and personal interactions of prolific Chilean conceptual artist Alfredo Jaar and his longtime friend, Venezuelan curator and poet Luis Pérez-Oramas. Weaving their vast references of visual culture and the contemporary world into a substantial and nuanced critique, the authors contribute to the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros’ ongoing project of publishing firsthand accounts of art and ideas from Latin America in this series of exchanges.

El poder de una idea uncovers the themes and challenges of Jaar’s lifelong artistic practice and a complex body of work that goes straight to the source: "ultimately...condensing everything to that one question that affects us all." An art book with a storytelling narrative and the freshness of a long-form journalism piece, the contents of The Power of an Idea can be experienced as a continuing dialogue within the span of a decade, or randomly explored as four separate conversation essays over time.

The volume includes stunning photographs and unpublished images from Alfredo Jaar’s archives, in a layout design inspired by the visual proposal of his oeuvre.

English version is also available.
