But We Cannot See Them


This is the first comprehensive sourcebook for one of the most important contemporary art communities in the UAE’s history. Available in separate English and Arabic editions, this work complete with a bespoke timeline centers on a group sometimes called “the five,” at an intersection of visual artists, writers, and filmmakers based in the UAE. Its members identified with a “new culture” of encouraging radical, formal and conceptual experimentation. Eventually, some of these artists founded the celebrated Flying House.

Greater than a Wall


Two worlds and families collide with the arrival of the wall across the West Bank. When an Israeli youth is killed by a Palestinian youth in suspicious circumstances, it falls on the reluctant Aron Lunzer from the right-wing Israeli media to question the inconsistencies in the official report. His investigation leads him to Jewish and Islamic extremists and to a Lebanese Christian who curses like a pure Sephardic Jew and reminds him of his dead wife. Together, they uncover the events that led to the deaths of the two youths in a race to foil a suicide mission that is set to ignite a third intifada.

As Brexit UK and Trump’s America continue to divide societies, this compelling novel provides a stark reminder of what can happen to communities when walls are built between people.
