“By posing a seemingly modest question—what visual experiences in our media-saturated world are ‘unwatchable?’—the editors of this remarkable volume have elicited an astonishing range of intensely felt responses. They reveal the most potent anxieties of our troubled times, forcing us to attend to what we cannot bear to witness directly.”––Martin Jay, University of California, Berkeley
