Measures of Distance

Mona Hatoum

1988, 15:25 minutes, colour, English

TAPECODE 177.01

Measures Of Distance is concerned with the artist's separation from her Palestinian family and in particular, her relationship with her mother whose letters from Beirut are read aloud as the soundtrack to the tape. The personal and political are inextricably bound up in a narrative that explores identity and sexuality against a backdrop of traumatic social rupture, exile and displacement.
