Many thanks to Jeanne Tremsal and Christopher Roth for including Sick-Amour in a recent exhibition at Fahrbereitschaft in Berlin. And many thanks to Von Niklas Maak and Katja Petrowskaja for this wonderful article in the Frankfurter Allgemeine about Sick-Amour and the other work in the show.
The Sharing Project installation, which explores the meaning of sharing via a series of videos and a communal sculpture of shared objects, is showing at the Kunst(Zeug)Haus in Rapperswil-Jona, Switzerland as part of the physical, in-person exhibition “sharity – teilen, tauschen, verzichten.”
Participate by sharing your toys for the communal sculpture of shared objects in The Sharing Project installation. On the last day of the show, May 16, there will be an opportunity to take toys from the communal sculpture and to share them further by offering them to other people.
The Sick-Amour movie is screening online, through February 28, at the Printed Matter Virtual Art Book Fair on the K. Verlag online booth. The screening is happening in connection to the upcoming release of the book, intercalations 5: Decapitated Economies. An essay I wrote about Sick-Amour is included in the book, and it will be available beginning in March from K. Verlag.
The Border-Ball movie is screening January 15-16 on the ArtCenter DTLA website. Watch the film and see the virtual show at: http://www.artcenter.edu/about/exhibitions/border-ball.html
The film chronicles my 40-day pilgrimage along the U.S. – Mexico border and shares stories of people I meet along the way. Featuring interviews by Humberto Velázquez Villalvazo, Estella Vargas, Uriel Vicona Guzman, Maggie Gonzalez, and Alam Martinez.
Alam Martinez: “El centro de detención de Otay Mesa… no es un lugar grato pa’ver a mi hermano… Hemos crecido juntos en toda la vida y la verdad lo extraño mucho… Me duele mi corazón.” “The Otay Mesa Detention Center… is not an enjoyable place to see my brother… We’ve grown up together our entire lives and I really miss him… My heart aches.”
Many thanks to Edward Sylvan, Yitzi Weiner, and Authority Magazine for this wonderful article about my work: “Filmmakers Making A Social Impact:Why & How Filmmaker Joel Tauber Is Helping To Change Our World.”
