Reposted from @fordfoundationgallery about it’s current exhibition #PerilousBodies: The piñata in Teresa Serrano’s chilling video has the features of many of the young Mexican women who were working in manufacturing companies of Ciudad Juárez when they were brutally assaulted and killed. She is vulnerable and helpless. And she is about to be destroyed.
The artist, who was born in Mexico City, created “La Piñata” in 2003, to bear witness to the unsolved murders of the disappeared. In 2019 the work remains as relevant as ever.
Serano chose the deceptive format of a children’s game as a way to make us look: watching the violent act, the viewer becomes complicit in the cycle of injustice.
At the end of the video, clearly, the killer will walk away unpunished.
Or will he?

“Can art save lives? That’s the question I asked myself in my twenties.” Writer Sandra Cisneros reflects when she recognized her students weren’t represented in the books they were reading. She decided to tell their stories in “The House on Mango Street” so that they could see themselves in a book where they are loved. “Art does change us for the better.” #ArtIsJustice ...

It's so important that we all understand how dangerous the current POTUS is to the well being of all of us. Please make every attempt to listen to the experts on Tuesday as they discuss where do we go from here: A panel of leading experts from across disciplines come together for the first time at this urgent time in world history
Washington, DC — The World Mental Health Coalition (WMHC) is an organization of mental health experts whose mission is to educate and empower the public and policymakers through scientific information about dangerousness and violence risk as this information pertains to government leaders. Its service is to provide consultation to government bodies upon request, so that they may proceed with their political processes in an informed way. For future prevention of dangers, it calls for mandatory fitness-for-duty assessments for all presidential and vice-presidential candidates.
A multidisciplinary panel of scholars and mental health professionals will gather at the National Press Club to discuss the global rise of unfit leadership and the costs of mental instability in a president. We bring together nine panelists—including many of the top minds in psychiatry, law, history, political science, economics, social psychology, propaganda, climate science, and nuclear science—who share the specific ways that psychological dangerousness in the presidency translate into social, cultural, and geopolitical dangerousness.
The technology and the extensive war-making powers that are available to our president, in his unstable state, make this perhaps one of the most dangerous moments in the history of our nation and the world. Just when a correct appraisal is most urgent, expert voices are all but lacking in public discourse. We believe that clear analysis of a situation is the first step toward finding an informed and effective solution.

How about contraception? Oh yes, because certain men in certain societies won't allow it. Some would clearly see their children die rather than stop having sex.
Education about contraception way overdue.
Feel so sorry for these ladies. The men need a kick in their backsides. Praying for all these poor ladies. GOD please bless them all.
Meanwhile international governments strip resources from Africa. Who are supplying guns etc for civil wars where poverty, famine and genocide continuously happen.
Good Job Mike. Now provide Contraception and alternatives here in America so we can stop this abortion fight
Thank you for caring and helping our society Really you have done a tremendous job. Well done. Keep it up

This is a contradiction of values: we rightfully help women who give birth in Tanzania and in our country we provide late term abortions of otherwise healthy babies and give them no help if they survive the abortion.

Chelsea for PRESIDENT in a few years down the road?!!! Think about it.
Chelsea Clinton for President. When Bill was president, America was peaceful and prosperous. Trailer park kid goes to Harvard and Oxford and becomes President of the United States. The real America.
Have you wondered why the Clinton Foundation folded so suddenly after Hillary was no longer in a position of influence? Perhaps this summary will provide some insight?
This is real. You can check the return yourself (see below). The real heart of the Clintons can be seen here. Staggering but not surprising. The below figures are from an official copy of the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation tax return for 2014, found on the National Center for Charitable Statistics web site. You can obtain the latest tax return on any charitable organization there.
The Clinton Foundation:
Number of Employees (line 5) 486
Total revenue (line 12) $177,804,612.00
Total grants to charity (line 13) $5,160,385.00 (this is less than 3%)
Total expenses: $91,281,145.00
Salaries (line 15) $34,838,106.00
Fund raising fees (line 16a) $850,803.00
Other expenses (line 17) $50,431,851.00
Net assets/fund balances (line 22) $332,471,349.00
So it required 486 people, who were paid $34.8 million, plus $91.3 million in fees and expenses, to give away $5.1 MILLION! And they called this a CHARITY?
This is one of the greatest white-collar crimes ever committed. And just think, one of the participants was a former president and one wanted to be elected President of the United States. If justice was truly served, they would both be in prison. Feel free to pass this on to your friends so they can also be informed. Credit: Beth Dill
