Join Emma Haraké and guests for the launch of the multilingual Mumtalakat web project presented by the Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery, followed by a panel discussion with Basheer Amin, Abeer Esber, Joëlle Ghanem, and Zaki Mahfoud.

Meaning possessions in Arabic, Mumtalakat centers on eight 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 DJÖYNMumtalakat has been developed for close listening and reading on desktop and mobile browsers, and all text content is available in Arabic, French, and English.

How can you participate? Join us in person or online by registering for the Zoom Meeting or watching live on YouTube.
