Summary Might a work of art move us to temper our more destructive impulses? In what ways do artists' feelings of empathy contribute to works that tackle problematic subjects and address the human condition? This episode features three artists - William Kentridge, Doris Salcedo, and Carrie Mae Weems - whose works explore conscience and the possibility of understanding and reconciling past and present, while exposing injustice and expressing tolerance for others.
