they were all there

  homage to my father,

      Max Schaefer

This video was inspired by a dream I had shortly after my father's death in December 1979. The background E sounds are recorded from a Continuum workshop with the late Emilie Conrad, the founder of Continuum Movement. It's a meditation on death, mourning and the element of water which is fundamental to this piece as it is to all life. And most of all it 's an homage to my late father, Max Schaefer. 

Love Letter to Roma, tra mito e realtà

Love Letter to Roma, tra mito e realtà,

 

based on my photographs and reflections of

 

Roma, was created for The Black Room at

 

Macro (Museo d’Arte Contemporanea in

 

Roma), and exhibited in June 2019.

 

It was an act of love for Roma and its people and

 

was part of a multimedia, participatory installation

 

which explored the idea, where is Home? Where

 

does the inner and outer world come into

 

alignment? Is there a place on earth that brings

 

out the best in you? 

 

For many, home is transient, especially when

 

persecution forces people to seek refuge

 

elsewhere. Then, home is not a choice, but a

 

limiting condition shaped by cultural fear and

 

ignorance.
