Mostly in Hebrew, some English. From WorldCat: The exhibit Mother Tongue (Museum of Art Ein Harod, 2002) attempted to link biography with geography. Most of the 22 artists who participated in the exhibit were born in Israel. However, the experience their parents faced upon migrating from Arab/Muslim countries to Israel is integral to the way they define their identities. Mizrahi denotes Jews of North African and West-Asian origin. First section in Hebrew only; unnumbered section is plates with Hebrew captions, third section is in Hebrew, Arabic, and English. The English t.p. is on p. 184. Scarce.
