 Metroactive Art | Betye Saar
Saar's shadow boxes might be filled with what's commonly referred to as "found objects," but her use of them lends the air of fated necessity to what begins as happenstance.
The bracelet was passed on to Saar, who uses it to encircle a milagro of a sword-pierced sacred heart in a composition dominated by somber fl and shot with touches of silver gold--illumination woven out of darkness.
But Saar's rigorous composition, her fluent translation of recognizable symbols and ordinary objects into a personal lexicon, and her attention to unifying detail and nuance avoid any semblance of casual tourism of world cultures, or of any overly self-conscious quest for Jungian archetypes.

 Ferdinand von Saar
Ferdinand von Saar is not as well known outside of Austria as his more canonical contemporaries Sacher-Masoch or Ebner-Eschenbach, but he was respected by major realist authors of the day and somewhat to his own surprise admired by members of the Young Vienna movement such as Schnitzler and Hofmannsthal.
The ongoing critical edition of Saar’s novellas under Polheim’s general editorship provides a major impetus for continuing scholarly debate, as evidenced by the importance placed on Saar’s work in the seminal studies of Austrian literature and culture by Rossbacher (1992) and Thomé (1993).
It is perhaps ironic that only in the last two decades scholars have begun to consider Saar’s writings from a cultural-historical (kulturhistorische) perspective, an approach that Saar himself identified repeatedly in his letters as the most appropriate method for the critical explication of his novellas.

 Inside the Wire: An Interview With Erik Saar
Proud to be working, as he saw it, to defend his country from terrorism, Saar quickly became alarmed and disgusted at the incompetent running of Guantanamo and the inhumane treatment of the detainees there, an evolution he traces in his recent book, Inside the Wire, co-written with Viveca Novak.
In Saar's telling, the combination of inept management, insufficient training, purposely loose interrogation guidelines, a refusal by the US government to abide by the provisions of the Geneva Conventions, and political pressure to wring intelligence, any intelligence, out of the detainees, made abuses inevitable.
Saar spoke with Mother Jones about his experience working at Guantanamo and why he thinks the camp is an affront to American values and is undermining the goals of the war on terror.
