“Al-Mutanabbi Street Starts Here,” a really wonderful project created by poet
Beau Beausoleil, is an exhibition of 261 artist books made by 260 international
artists/artist teams from 24 countries. These books were made to reflect upon
the March 5, 2007 car-bomb attack that took place in Al-Mutanabbi Street, the
ancient street of booksellers, poets and writers, located at the literary and
cultural heart of Baghdad, Iraq. The collection of artists’ books reflects both the
targeted attack on this street of the booksellers as well as the ultimate futility of
those who try to erase thought. This project is both a lament and a
commemoration of the singular power of words.  
More info about this project is posted here.
