bookshelves: lebanon, books-i-own, nonfiction

This is actually the catalogue of an art project, with essays on the moral, urban and architectural condition of post-civil war Lebanon. There are truths here masquerading as opinion or artistic expression that you won't see in official historical accounts, but which hold many truths nevertheless.

Selected works:
- Hostage: The Bashar Tapes by The Atlas Group, a project created by Walid Raad.

- Laying Claim to Beirut: Urban Narrative and Spatial Identity in the Age of Solidere by Saree Makdisi.

(Fundació Antoni Tàpies has published a new volume in the series, Contemporary Arab Representations: The Iraqi Equation).
