Production took place in Saskatchewan, Alberta and Ontario, as the mentioned northern territories will take more time for preparation. In Saskatchewan I continued my work with the Lac La Ronge First Nation. Around Kindersley it was about agriculture and women behind desk and counter. The Alberta production was mainly defined by the weeks I spent in Fort McMurray / Fort McKay. In Ontario I paid respect to a very important work field for my own personal well being in all the demanding production years - I had the pleasure to portray an excellent yoga teacher in Toronto. Thank you to all 2018 project participants!
2018 was also a year of exhibits. The beginning made the one at the John F. Kennedy Institute in Berlin. In November two more shows opened: First in Charlottetown, P.E.I., Work/Shift, which is still on display until January 19, 2019. In this group exhibition the project is represented with photographs from the 2014 P.E.I. production. On November 21 the inauguration of Face to Face with Canada – A Nation at Work at the German Embassy in Ottawa took place. Ambassador Sabine Sparwasser is a faithful supporter of the project since 2012. The photographs will remain on display until June 2020. As for recent publications - the Canadian online magazine ARTSFILE recently published an interview - Martin Weinhold shines a light on working Canadians.
There is a new WorkSpace Canada website accessible, my sincere thanks to Dr. Branko Woischwill who generously submitted his time to make the webpage become a reality.
I would like to explicitly thank the people who helped making the 2018 journey possible. I wish everybody a beautiful holiday season and a happy new year!
