    Home Away from Home – Taysir Batniji

    In this volume, Taysir Batniji brings together photographs, selections from family archives, drawings, and writings to explore the sense of dislocation and the different ideas of "home" experienced by various members of his family who immigrated to the United States from the Middle East.
    As Batniji explains, "The state of 'between-ness'--cultural as well as geographic--is an issue that has preoccupied me since I first arrived in France in 1995. Exile, displacement, and mobility are themes that have driven my work for many years."
