Bollywood Superstars

Edited with text by Julien Rousseau, Hélène Kessous. Forewords by Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak, Hervé Barbaret, Sandra Lagumina, Manuel Rabaté, Emmanuel Kasarhérou, Souraya Noujaim. Text by Amandine D’Azevedo, Swarnavel Eswaran, Eva Markovits, Jeanne Rethacker, Némésis Srour, Selvaraj Velayutham, Ophélie Wiel.

In India, the power of an icon or a holy person is often conveyed by way of sight: one must behold the entity in question. This particular import of sight has undoubtedly contributed to cinema’s elevated position within Indian culture; the release of a film and the hero-worship of actors in India arouses great fervor. Bollywood Superstars traces the development of Indian cinema from its precedents in the late 19th century to its establishment as a massive industry a century later.

Architecture of the Territory

Text by Ahmad Alaqra, Ali Karimi, Asaeil Al Saaed, Aseel Al Yacoub, Atef Alshehri, Balsam Madi, Ben Tosland, et al.

This publication examines the role of national narratives in defining the Arab territory through the strategic implementation of architecture and urban planning. The Arab region, home to 423,000,000 inhabitants, is almost twice the size of the United States but still lacks sufficient and accessible research. Architecture of the Territory uncovers the mechanisms that have shaped this distinct territory, providing a critically overdue examination of the dichotomy between the overplanned cities of autocratic governments and the post-conflict urban sprawls of precarious states in the Arab world, where national narratives have acted as a vehicle to implement the development of these territories. . . . .go to book page >>
