The J.Street Project
As part of the Wexner Center’s 25th anniversary, The Box is dedicating the entire year of programming to work produced in the Film/Video Studio. Screenings in this free exhibition space for video, located just across from the Wexner Center Store, run continuously seven days a week, the same hours as our ticket office (Mon–Wed: 9 AM–6 PM; Thu–Fri: 9 AM–8 PM; Sat: 10 AM–8 PM; Sun: 11 AM–6 PM).
Subject of exhibitions and retrospectives worldwide, British-based and American-born artist Susan Hiller received support from the Wexner Center's Art & Technology program for The J.Street Project, her latest video.
A stunning meditation on the persistence of Jewish history within modern Germany, the film was born from the artist's attempt to film every street sign and place marker in the country containing the words for "Jew" and "Jewish." (2002-05; 67 mins.)
Hiller's project was supported by the European Association for Jewish Culture. Look for the book version in the Wexner Center Store.
