Barbara Rose Haum
Barbara Rose Haum’s work emphasizes the performative aspect of language by examining how religious values and Jewish identies are constructed through text, and more specifically through the ritualistic repetition of words and images. The work attempts to
transform traditional readings of biblical texts through intertwining contemporary narratives. Her piece Lunar Performances: Creating an Architecture of Text In Time is an extension of her inquiry into the relationship between the
mundane and the sacred, the public and private rituals through which we form our intimate and social sense of place ad non-place. Audience members are encouraged to actively take a part in the performance throughout time. The interactive nature
of this work has been captured on an interactive web page that will allow the performances to continue through the use of digital and electronic media.
Barbara Rose Haum received her Doctorate in Studio Art in 1995 at New York University, NYC. She has received numerous awards and has exhibited her work nationally and internationally. Barbara Rose Haum is Assistant Pofessor of Culture and Communication at New York University.
