On Monday, the Huffington Post reported on a charity fundraiser that will be co-hosted by former President Clinton, actor Ben Stiller and New York art dealer David Zwirner--now, get an in-depth look straight from Stiller.

In the video below, watch Stiller discuss his big night, as well as the Artists For Haiti auction that it accompanies. He also comments on his latest film, 30 Minutes or Less, and waxes philosophical about disaster and humanitarian aid in general.

The usually comedic Stiller looks stonefaced throughout the video, saying: "as the world moves on--it has to move on--...it's important to be able to draw attention back there." Read up on the project and see some of the art here. According to the Stiller Foundation, the auction will include works by Adel Abdessemed, Francis Alÿs, Mamma Andersson, Louise Bourgeois, Cecily Brown, Chuck Close, John Currin, Marlene Dumas, Urs Fischer, Dan Flavin, Jasper Johns, Martin Kippenberger, Jeff Koons, Glenn Ligon, Paul McCarthy, Chris Ofili, Raymond Pettibon, Neo Rauch, James Rosenquist, Ed Ruscha, Cindy Sherman, Rudolf Stingel, Luc Tuymans, Zhang Huan and others to be announced.
