Of particular interest is a work Jaar has done after the Rwanda genocide. Major new organizations were hesitant to cover the event itself. Instead, most of the new and images were of the after-effects. Time, Newsweek, and other major news sourses of the first world reported the "apocalypse" which was taking place six months later at the refugee camps on the Zaire side of the Rwanda-Zaire boarder. Jaar was in Rwanda during the Massacres. He took thousands of photographs. For his instillation on Rwanda, he placed each photo in a black box so that the image could not bee seen. On each box he briefly described the photo which could not be seen, "as if I were describing the piture to someone who was blind."
