Zeek Magazine, May 31, 2014

Artist Q, Artist A is Zeek’s new series of artist-artist conversations.
Argentina-born Mirta Kupferminc is an award-winning artist living in Buenos Aires. A daughter of Auschwitz survivors, she focuses her art on memory, identity, migrations, and human rights. She is a member of the Jewish Art Salon, and the first ever international fellow at LABA’s House of Study in New York City.
At the 14 St Y she’s also exhibiting an artist book from “Mothers in the Bible Talk to Wichi Mothers,” a Schusterman Make It Happen project, created as part of a cultural exchange arranged for this project between Jewish ORT students and a mother from an Argentine Wichi tribe, an indigenous matriarchal people. 
Verwer & Kupferminc discuss Jewish art in South America, LABA: House of Study Fellowship, Jewish writers’ palms of hands, crossed by their own texts. Read interview here.
