One of his better-known works is This Is Not America (A Logo for America) (1987), a sequence of projections on a light board overlooking a U.S. Army recruitment station in Times Square. The projections included an outlined map of the United States with the words This Is Not America written across it, the same words written across an image of the U.S. flag, and finally the word America across a map of all the Americas—North, Central, and South.

Chilean-born artist, architect, and filmmaker Alfredo Jaar creates installations, photographs, films, and community-based projects that explore issues around humanitarian crises and the relationship between the First and Third Worlds. Probing the contemporary over-saturation of media images and the limitations of art in representing atrocities, Jaar draws attention to global power and exploitation. Perhaps his best-known work, This Is Not America (A Logo for America) (1987) consisted of a sequence of projections overlooking a U.S. army recruitment station in Times Square, including the outlined map of the U.S. with the words “This Is Not America” written across, and the word “America” superimposed over all the Americas—North, Central, and South. “There's this huge gap between reality and its possible representations. And that gap is impossible to close,” Jaar has said. “So as artists, we must try different strategies for representation.”
