Day Four: "The Border Wall"
Today we have 2 of the 8 steel panel frames completed. We are working on the connecting brackets. Here are a few new photos of the steel framework. These will eventually sit on top of one another to create the 40 foot x 16 foot wall. It will be filled with concrete once it is in place.
Thank you again my brothers for all your hard work and skilled labor to make this public art installation and statement a reality !
The incredible souls that we label as illegals, poor immigrants, people who want to steal our jobs...( undocumented Mexican labor workers ) have actually come together to help construct this wall with me. Because they believe in showing the world what a dividing wall looks like, feels like when you are on the side they want to keep out, and they believe in a peaceful way of letting the American public know that they are not here to take anything... but actually here to give and help build our "United" States.
This Border Wall art installation will be constructed completely by hand using only undocumented Mexican labor workers. The structure is made from welded steel, rebar and concrete, 40 feet in length by 16 feet tall, weighing over 25,000 pounds. Modeled after the proposed border wall for the US / Mexico 2000 mile border. The location is set and soon to be revealed. I encourage all individuals, legal and illegal, to visit this wall, put up images of your family members you have left behind in other countries to be here in search of a better life, graffiti your thoughts, tag your beliefs. Art must be used to create social awareness. More details soon!

Thank you Joe Salters @joel.salters for your help with installing the big one for (tomorrow!) Friday's exhibition: I am happy to announce my exhibition "Wall(s)" at Deutsches Haus at New York University The opening is Friday, April 28, 6:00 p.m.
Deutsches Haus at NYU presents a photography exhibition of Stefan Falke's "Wall(s)". Please join us for the exhibition opening and a conversation between the photographer Stefan Falke and the journalist and author Claudia Steinberg on April 28 at 6 pm.
Since Stefan Falke began photographing artists on both sides of the U.S.-Mexican border in 2008, the physical barrier itself has been a prominent and unavoidable protagonist in his work. His intent has always been to shine a spotlight on the cultural vitality of the region, and over the years Falke has portrayed about 200 painters, architects, designers, photographers, musicians, and writers, documenting a creative exuberance that is almost completely overlooked in the media. Inevitably, the fence became a potent visual presence in his images as a symbol for La Frontera – a painfully divided yet multicultural, cosmopolitan and resilient region that is its own country.
In the current political climate, these images from the embattled border territory take on an added historical weight. They serve as an important reminder of the shared humanity on both sides of the border.

When thousands of Haitians arrived at the US border over the last year they realized that getting into the country would not be easy. Now they are adapting to life in Tijuana, Mexico. Tijuana is the city with most movement of migrants on the Western hemisphere. The city has seen new migrants coming back and forth for decades. Deportees, refugees, asylum seekers. Today they are seeing a new wave, Haitians arriving from Brazil.

مرزبان جان مي دهد خاك نمي دهد.
دیروز خبر شهادت ۱۰ تا از مرزبانای عزیز کشورمون لا به لای خبرای مربوط به درگیریهای انتخاباتی رو شنیدم.
واقعا جای تاسف داره که با این همه حجم از خشونت یه عده بجای اینکه باهم متحدبشن و جناح بازی رو بذارن کنار و خواستار برخورد قاطع با عاملان این جنایت بشن فقط درگیر اینن که همدیگرو خراب کنن.
پ.ن:با شنیدن این خبر وظیفه خودم دونستم که به پیشگاه این عزیزان ابراز احترام کنم.
