Meaning possessions in Arabic, Mumtalakat centers oneight interviews between Haraké and local Arabic speakers invited to reflect on their migration experience through a selection of personal objects that accompanied them. Alongside these testimonies are images of their objects, critical texts by Hoda Adra, Abeer Esber, and May Telmissany exploring questions of displacement, language, and oral history, an introduction by Haraké, a bibliography, and interview transcriptions.
Designed by DJÖYN, Mumtalakat has been developed for close listening and reading on desktop and mobile browsers, and all text content is available in Arabic, French, and English.
