Daniel Horowitz has been selected to participate in the prestigious Leipzig International Art Programme (LIA) located in a incredible old massive factory cultural complex, The Spinnerei Art Center in Leipzig, Germany. This sprawling art mecca with artist studios, galleries, and a communal art center, is revered for its concentration of remarkable painters, including Neo Rauch, Titus Schade, and Matthias Weischer.

“Just get out there and get rejected, and sometimes it’s going to get dirty. But that’s OK, ‘cause you’re going to feel great after, you’re going to feel like, 'Wow. I disobeyed fear,’” said Jason Comely, a freelance IT guy from Cambridge, Ont. 

Fear is one of the strongest and most basic of human emotions, and it’s the focus of Fearless, the second episode of Invisibilia, NPR’s new show on the invisible forces that shape human behavior.

In this episode of Invisibilia, NPR’s new show about human behavior, we wanted to explore entanglements: the invisible ways we’re entangled with each other. So we called a comedian.

I’m a fan of Maria Bamford, who has done impressions of her mother throughout her career. Sometimes the version of her mom she plays is just funny, because the mom can be so charmingly upbeat about the horrors of the world that it’s hilarious. But sometimes it feels like it’s about elements in their relationship that have a darker side. Like in this YouTube bit.

So what happens when you mess in a very public way with an entanglement that’s pretty complicated already: the emotional entanglement between mother and daughter? How does that affect things?
