Specific works deal with the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, the United States military, and local conflicts in New York City. The total running time of the program is approximately one and half hours.

Identifying Homeland is presented in conjunction with Homeland, an exhibition that brings together works that critically examine the concept of homeland, and draw attention to the recent mobilization of the term as well as its broader connotations. Homeland considers shifting geopolitical spaces and the social contradictions and cultural differences that shape them, evoking issues ranging from belonging and exile to nationalism and territory.
Homeland was organized by the 2002-03 Helena Rubinstein Curatorial Fellows of the Whitney Museum of American Art Independent Study Program: Craig Buckley, Tanya Leighton, Sara Reisman, Emily Rothschild, and Nat Trotman.
