Episode 21: Blocklisting Jewish Art
May 21, 2009

Over the last year, Toronto sound, installation, and performance artist Reena Katz has developed an inspiring exhibit exploring Jewish history in Kensington market. The exhibit – each hand as they are called – was set to launch at the Luminato Festival on May 20, 2009. A last minute decision by the Koffler Centre For the Arts to completely dissociate from Katz, based on their perception of Katz’s Israel/Palestine politics, is currently preventing the exhibit from taking place.

radio613 spoke with Katz this week to talk about each hand as they are called, the process of blocklisting, and the efforts of hegemonic institutions to confine exchange of ideas and expression.
