Program Title: Dialogue & Dissent: Artist Reena Katz silenced because of political affiliations
Description: Reena Katz is a Toronto-based artist and activist whose work is currently being restricted because of her political affiliations. Reena has a long history of involvement with feminist, anti-occupation, anti-racist and queer organizations, as well as within Toronto's Jewish and arts communities. Due to open May 14, her site-specific project, commissed through the Koffler Centre of the Arts, "each hand as they are called," faces threat. The concerns of the Koffler are her pro-Palestinian affiliations — Israeli Apartheid Week, The Coalition Against IsraeliI Apartheid and the Jewish Women's Committee to End the Occupation, now known as Women in Solidarity with Palestine and interpretations of her politics around the future of the state of Israel.

CFRU Program Coordinator, Tara-Michelle Ziniuk, spoke with Reena by phone the evening of Wednesday May 13.
