|Author||Eline Van Der Vlist Ed.|
|Publisher||The Khalid Shoman Foundation|
“Hiwar” means “conversation” in Arabic. This volume is published by Darat al Funun, a foundation for the arts whose mission is to provide a platform for contemporary Arab artists, support art practices and artistic exchange, stimulate critical discourse, and research, document, and archive Arab art, on the occasion of its 25th anniversary exhibition, residencies, and talks programme, curated by Adriano Pedrosa. It brought fourteen artists from the Arab world, Africa, Asia, and Latin America to Amman for residencies in 2013, in order to promote exchanges between artists from the margins and give them opportunities to learn from each other’s practices and experiences.
