Witnessing Encounters

by Chris Harker

Front, May 2004, v. 15, no. 3, pp. 12-15

Chris Harker discusses the practice or act of witnessing in reference to Jayce Salloum's work. Harker also refers to and connects Giorgio Agamben's book Remnants of Auschwitz to Salloum's, in order to illustrate how the act of witnessing and experience are intrinsically connected. Harker questions whether one can ever truly witness (and/or experience) an event.
