The GBTH Project

MUTUALRESPECT part1 poster draft-3.png

The G.B.T.H. (Grab By The Horns) Project, curated by Marina Münter, opens tomorrow, Sunday, October 15 at 12PM SLT. Marina notes that the project is a proposal of occupation of abandoned spaces in the city with exhibitions, taking them to public spaces in counterpoint of the closed environment of a gallery or museum. The first show, or edition, is a collective exhibit named #mutualrespect part1, in which 16 photographers were invited  to portray male vulnerability and asked to take a photo of a man they are close to, completely disarmed in a way only they can see. The photographers are, in no particular order, Marina Münter, Irina Fowrzy, Pari Dolia, Mich Michabo, Kate Bergdorf, Isa Messioptra, Catalina Staheli, Miu Miu Miu, Megan Prumier, Elodee, B. tomstone (aka Billie), kiki Ergenthal, Hillany Scofield, Wiona, Ania Baxton and Gartruth Garmonbozia. Marina explains about her project that the idea came when a friend that I adore told me that he can’t cry nor express feelings because it was not what people expected from him, and I am sure others can relate to itThe result turned out in an interest mix of images, from painful nudity to subtle sweet things like pollen allergy set up on broken concrete floor, hidden by tall buildings, ruins and sneaky, uncontrolled wild nature. The multi-talented Pari Dolia will DJ. Please be on the lookout for the G.B.T.H. Project poster on Flickr for the landmark that will be posted on the day of the opening.
