Alfredo Jaar’s iconic “This Is Not America” returns to Times Square 27 years after its first appearance.

From the Guggenheim:

A Logo for America features the words “This is not America” emblazoned across the flag and outline of the United States; Jaar thereby denounces the erroneous application of the name America to just one part of the American continent. Originally displayed in Times Square in 1987, the 2014 iteration underscores that, almost thirty years later, the representation of an entire continent is still monopolized by the same, single country.

“Language is not innocent and reflects a geopolitical reality,” says Jaar. “The use of the word America in the U.S.A., erroneously referring only to the U.S.A. and not to the entire continent is a clear manifestation of the political, financial, and cultural domination of the U.S.A. of the rest of the continent.”
