Description

Other People Think [Outros pensam | Otros piensan] is a project by Alfredo Jaar in homage to John Cage on the occasion of the 2012 John Cage Centennial. The project is now translated to a bilingual edition, Portuguese-Spanish.

Written in 1927, Other People Think was delivered by Cage at the Hollywood Bowl where (then a student at Los Angeles High School) he won the Southern California Oratorical Contest. Although Cage was only 15 years old at the time, his essay frames a bold critique and portentous analysis of North and South American relations, and continues to have incredible resonance and relevance to contemporary culture and politics.

As a Chilean artist living in the United States 85 years later, Alfredo Jaar still works with the imbalances of this historically stagnant relationship. Reintroducing this acute text to today’s audience hopes to bring Cage’s teachings, which have yet to be followed, back to light.

From now on, Portuguese and Spanish speakers have the opportunity to read this seminal text in their languages.
