Protest (Season 4: Episode 2)
How do contemporary artists engage politics, inequality, and the many conflicts that besiege the world today? How do artists use their work to discuss or oppose misery, turmoil, and injustice? This episode examines the ways in which contemporary artists picture and question war, express outrage, and empathize with the suffering of others. Whether bearing witness to tragic events, presenting alternative histories, or engaging in activism, the artists interviewed in Episode Two use visual art as a means to provoke personal transformations and question social revolutions.

Featured artists in Protest are Nancy Spero, An-My Lê, Alfredo Jaar and Jenny Holzer.

Premieres Sunday, November 4, 2007, at 10:00 p.m. ET on PBS.
