José Carlos Teixeira is a Portuguese visual and video artist and Professor of 4D Art at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His current show is called “On Exile,” and it is on view at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art in the Imprint gallery until May 20th, 2018. The installation consists of two films, which both consist of interviews with two groups of people that are, in a sense, exiled. The first installation, Fragments in search of meaning, consists of interviews with people who suffer from mental illness and depression. The second installation, Elsewhere within here, consists of interviews with refugees from the Middle East. Both works evoke the concepts of otherness and empathy.
