Jordan Weber

Jordan Weber is a Des Moines–based multi-disciplinary artist/activist who works predominantly with inner-city communities nationwide, with a focus on the Midwest. His work asks: "How do we live independently from a system that is unsustainable for our societal whole and live towards communal empowerment? If a legacy of violence against the land threatens violence against the bodies that should be nourished and supported by it, how can we best respond? When heritage speaks to survival despite ongoing structural disadvantage what art objects can we build now, that our descendants will thrive from?"
