2 Joel Tauber / The Sharing Project 3. April 6. Mai 2015 We are happy to present The Sharing Project, the 6th solo show of Joel Tauber at our gallery. Why and under which circumstances should we share? To what extent should we share? Should we share similarly in every situation with everyone in the same way? What rules (moral, ethical, political, social) should guide our sharing? What impulses impact how much we share? Are we acting consistently? To what extent are we teaching our kids to share? If we believe in the value of sharing, why do we allow so much inequity to occur? These questions haunt Joel Tauber at the beginning of The Sharing Project. More questions emerge, as he tries to uncover its meaning and teach it to his young son, Zeke. Tauber`s search leads them to the remains of Happyville, a former Socialist Jewish commune founded at the beginning of the 20th century in South Carolina, that faded away after just 3 years. Through his rigorous - and oftentimes humorous - experiments and escapades, Tauber embodies the researcher, thinker, and adventurer. He battles our assumptions and furthers the proud literary traditions of the fool and jester. In his recent project, it is as a father who encounters the challenge of teaching his first son to share, leading him to a deep and rigorous exploration of sharing. Tauber interviewed numerous scholars in evolutionary biology, psychology, anthropology, history, philosophy, education, economics, and political science. Their answers lead to new questions and different interpretations. The show exposes the complexities and contradictions of sharing. The installation - like the fool - does not demolish boundaries but offers possibilities of escaping them. Joel Tauber received his MFA from Art Center College of Design and his BA from Yale University. The Sharing Project will be in the center of an upcoming solo show at the University Art Museum at Cal State Long Beach. His work has been featured in the 2004 and 2008 California Biennials; Orange County Museum of Art, Newport Beach, CA; Kunstverein Hildesheim, Germany; Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Canada; W139, Amsterdam; De Appel Centre For Contemporary Art, Amsterdam; and the Torrance Art Museum, Torrance, CA. Film Festivals include the San Francisco Documentary Festival, the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival, the Sedona International Film Festival, and the Downtown Film Festival - Los Angeles, where his movie, Sick-Amour, was awarded Best Green Film. Tauber won the 2007 Contemporary Collectors of Orange County Fellowship, the CalArts / Alpert Ucross Residency Prize for Visual Arts, and a 2015 grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation in conjunction with a residency from the Grand Central Art Center.

16 Joel Tauber / The Sharing Project Ausstellung: 3. April 6. Mai 2015 Wir freuen uns, mit The Sharing Project die sechste Einzelausstellung von Joel Tauber in der Galerie Adamski zu präsentieren. Warum und in welchen Situationen sollten wir etwas mit jemandem teilen? Bis zu welchem Grad ist Teilen gerecht oder notwendig? Wenn wir etwas teilen, teilen wir in jeder Situation, mit jedem in gleicher Weise? Welchen Regeln (moralischen, ethischen, politischen, sozialen) folgen wir, wenn wir unseren Besitz teilen? Gibt es eine Art verhaltensbiologischen Impuls, der uns zum Teilen animiert? Gibt es überhaupt gute Gründe dafür, etwas teilen zu wollen? Solche Fragen beschäftigten Joel Tauber am Anfang von The Sharing Project. Das Konzept des Teilens geriet dabei umso mehr ins Wanken, je verständlicher Tauber es seinem Sohn Zeke vermitteln wollte. Der Film begleitet den Versuch beider, dem Sinn und den Gesetzen des Teilens auf die Spur zu kommen. Auf der Suche nach der richtigen Praxis des Teilens stößt Tauber mit seinem Sohn auf den Überrest von Happyville, einer ehemaligen sozialistischen Gemeinschaft von jüdischen Immigranten aus Russland, die in South Carolina Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts gegründet und schon nach drei Jahren wieder aufgegeben wurde. In seinen Projekten verkörpert Tauber mit seinen teils komischen - und doch alle explizit komischen Sprachformen meidenden - Experimenten und Eskapaden den Typus des unerschütterlich gegen alle Widerstände ankämpfenden Forschers, Denkers und Abenteurers, der sich hin und wieder aus der Literatur heraus ins wahre Leben verirrt, wo er nicht selten belächelt wird. In seiner neusten Arbeit ist es der Familienvater, der seine Kinder bei der Unmöglichkeit beobachtet ihre Spielsachen miteinander zu teilen. Dieses Phänomen führte ihn zu einer mehrjährigen, grundsätzlichen Auseinandersetzung mit dem Thema des Teilens. Im Verlauf des Projekts befragte Tauber Evolutionsbiologen, Psychologen, Anthropologen, Historiker, Philosophen, Ökonomen und Politikwissenschaftler. Deren Antworten führten zu immer neuen Fragen und verschiedenen Interpretationen. Die Ausstellung versucht die Komplexität und Widersprüchlichkeit des Konzepts des Teilens mit einer mehrteiligen Videoinstallation als eine Art Versuchsanordnung erfahrbar zu machen. Joel Tauber studierte Kunst am Art Center in Pasadena und in Yale. Seine Arbeiten waren in zahlreichen institutionellen Gruppenausstellungen in den USA und Europa zu sehen, u.a.bei der Californian Biennial im Orange County Museum of Art (2004 und 2008), im De Appel, Amsterdam und bei der Werkleitz Biennale in Halle. Sick Amour und Pumping, von denen es jeweils auch eine Kinoversion gibt, wurden auf verschiedenen Dokumentarfilmfestivals in den USA gezeigt. Sick Amour wurde beim Downtown Film Festival, Los Angeles 2007 als Best Green Film ausgezeichet und 2008 gewann Tauber den renommierten CalArts/Alpert Ucross Residency Prize for Visual Arts. The Sharing Project ist Teil Taubers erster institutioneller Einzelausstellung, die im Juni diesen Jahres im University Art Museum in Cal State Long Beach eröffnen wird.
