Synopsis: This book offers one of the largest surveys of the work of artist Emily Jacir, known for her reflective works of art that are both extremely personal and acutely political. This book focuses on the award-winning artist's relationship to Europe and the Mediterranean and explores how one relates to a particular place. Incorporating historic archival material,
Jacir traces Europe through its history of colonialism and trade
routes, reanimating it through performative gestures. Her work
offers uniquely personal revelations about Europe's culture
of exile and surveillance, etymology and language, as well as
the tension between figuration and abstraction in art. Jacir
utilizes conceptual tools that reveal the political limitations of
society, creating scenarios that erode or question communal
boundaries and borders. The book includes reproductions of
Jacir's works such as Material for a Film (2004-ongoing), which
won the Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale, as well as stazione
(2009) and Lydda Airport (2009). It also includes original essay
contributions from Jean Fisher, Lorenzo Fusi, and Omar Kholeif,
among others.
