Hiwar: Sense & Intuition

Edited by Mouna Atassi, Shireen Atassi. Introduction by Mouna Atassi. Text by Golan Hadji, Fateh Moudaress, Adonis, Ambra d'Antone. Afterword by Adonis.

In 1998, the Syrian curator, gallerist and publisher Mouna Atassi brought together the acclaimed Syrian artist Fateh Moudaress (1922–99) and the great Arab poet Adonis (born 1930) for a public conversation that took place across four days at Atassi’s gallery in Damascus.
Moudaress was famous for boldly hued paintings that merge Islamic, Sumerian, Assyrian and Christian visual traditions in a uniquely modern synthesis. Similarly, Adonis—one of the most influential figures in modern Arabic poetry—has rebelled against the tropes of traditional Arabic poetry to experiment with free verse, variable meter and prose poetry; he is responsible for a colossal poetic revolution in . . . .go to book page >>

Beirut: the Eras of Design

Edited by Marco Costantini, Nour Salame, Gregory Buchakjian. Foreword and introduction with text by Marco Costantini. Text by Gregory Buchakjian, Charif Majdalani, Hala Moubarak. Interview by Marc Baroud, Hala Abdel Malak, Cherine Magrabi Tayeb.

A city at the crossroads of East and West, said to have been destroyed and rebuilt seven times since antiquity, Beirut continues to nourish the imagination of many creative artists. The vibrancy of Lebanese design stands out as exceptional in the region and should be understood via the country’s long-standing cultural relations with Europe (especially France)—but also with the Emirates and their ancient craft traditions.
This publication analyzes Lebanese design’s unique convergence of economic and architectural reconstruction, social awareness and international development. It also testifies to the designers’ determination to take ownership of their destiny and image by presenting objects and . . . .go to book page >>
