If Alfredo Jaar’s Lament of the Images (2002) offers a pessimistic if necessary experience about media images and their control in an era of spectacle, this three-screen video returns to the source of his pessimism — representations of the Rwandan genocide of 1994 — to offer a revitalised critique drawing upon a range of documentary and archival sources.
