Berman, Sabina - still image [media]

Berman, Sabina - still image [media]

In her semi-autobiographical work, La Bobe (Bubbeh), Sabina Berman writes of a young Jewish child growing up in Mexico City and her inner struggle between her loyalties to her beloved bubbe (grandmother) and the adaptations she feels she must make to her external Mexican/Catholic environment. She explores on multiple levels the universal concept of "identity," including the challenge of maintaining a cultural, religious and linguistic identity at odds with that of the mainstream, and the implications of inhabiting a geographic space in which one neither feels nor is perceived as belonging.

Institution: Sabina Berman, Mexico
