After enduring a campaign of stonewalling and slander from mainstream Jewish institutions, artist Reena Katz and curator Kim Simon’s exhibit ‘each hand as they are called’ returned to the streets of Toronto this October. radio613 caught up with Katz for the exhibit’s finale. Tune in for the results of a public site work that evokes a complex and dynamic representation of Toronto’s diverse personal, political, and cultural Yiddish and Jewish histories. Included in the broadcast – Katz’s haunting musical compositions performed throughout Kensington Market. Inspired by the exhibit, Malcah recounts the landscape of Toronto’s Jewish feminist labour movement in the 1920s and 1930s. (Original Air Date: October 2009)
