Amidst Times Square’s maelstrom of advertising and commercial culture, Alfredo Jaar‘s animation A Logo for America displays the statement “This is not America” emblazoned across the outline of the United States. Through an apparently contradictory juxtaposition, the work denounces the fact that the word “America” is routinely but erroneously applied to just one part of the American continent. In the 2014 reiteration of this 1987 intervention, Jaar points out that, almost 30 years later, the representation of an entire continent is still monopolized by the same, single country.
