The Polish artist Krzysztof Wodiczko uses art, design, and technology to empower marginalized communities. This rare glimpse into his life and public showings highlights his lifelong research into monuments, war, and trauma. The evolution of Wodiczko’s political art is illustrated throughout the film, as we follow him from his first intervention in Warsaw in 1968 to his most recent piece aimed at transforming the Arc de Triomphe, a Parisian monument to war, into its antithesis: a temporary site for the abolition of war and for peace activism.
