IN RAMALLAH, RUNNING
To celebrate the recent launch of In Ramallah, Running The Mosaic Rooms is pleased to present a discussion lead by the author Guy Mannes-Abbott on:
Thursday 25th October 2012, 7pm
The text consists of 14 parts, which alternate running within the limits of the city and walking out from it to, along, beyond and off limits, discovering how insidiously mobile those limits are under Occupation. With singular style and compelling force, Mannes-Abbott’s texts generate a very special intimacy with a rarely seen or experienced Palestine.
The book is a uniquely personal encounter with Palestine interweaving short, poetic texts with exploratory essays. International artists and prominent writers have been invited to respond both directly and indirectly to the texts with newly commissioned works.
Guy will be joined by special guests, writer Jean Fisher and artist Jananne al-Ani who will discuss and explore further the issues, thoughts and experiences raised through the book. He will also give a short reading from the book. The panel will be chaired by writer and critic Sheyma Buali.
Guy Mannes-Abbott is a writer, essayist and critic, whose work often appears in visual art contexts, most recently at the Folkestone Triennial. He has taught at the Architectural Association School of Architecture, London and has given regular readings of his work.
In Ramallah, Running is published by Blackdog Publishing and in thanks to ArtSchool Palestine and Sharjah Art Foundation.
