The article discusses the artwork of textile artist Lisa Kokin. According to the article, three major themes emerge in Kokin's work: a strong sense of Jewishness, the expression of a well-developed social consciousness, and a concern for feminist issues. One piece, "Remembrance," has the Holocaust as its theme, has been exhibited in Staten Island, New York and Berkeley, California and was purchased for the Buchenwald Memorial in Germany. Kokin works in mixed media collage and also creates artists' books.
