Originally aired 1/8/10
Ambiguity is My Political Weapon, part of October 2009's Creative Time Summit: Revolutions in Public Practice, features an introduction by author David Levi Strauss, in which the "anarchist art critic and theorist" discusses the work of Alfredo Jaar and their collaboration, Lament of the Images, in which they explore the implications of withholding images of U.S.-perpetrated torture. He closes his talk with a theory on the relationship between the value of released and unreleased photographs. Levi Strauss' lecture is followed by presentations by artist Liam Gillick, who discusses the relation between art, life and labor while artist-activist collective Temporary Service's Marc Fischer speaks about the new social and economic infrastructures needed and utilized by artists and arts organizations (24 minutes).
