Judy Werthein makes socially engaged artwork that calls out economic and political injustice. Whether she is filming unemployed Americans recounting their own personal histories of this country or ordering Chinese-manufactured sneakers specifically designed with compass, flashlight and built-in maps for crossing the US-Mexico border, Werthein is using her artwork to highlight global issues of migration, consumerism, and power.
