JERUSALEM.- Al Hoash announced the third release in its series of publications on Palestinian art. This publication is the first to provide an overview of Makhoul's oeuvre and makes an important contribution to Palestinian visual art as part of al Hoash's pursuit of credible and academic research on the production of Palestinian art in a contemporary and historical context. This is an important contribution to establishing a platform for critical discourse and a reliable resource of documentation, interpretation and crititicism of visual arts.

Bashir Makhoul is a retrospective monograph on the art of this influential, British-based Palestinian artist. For more than twenty years, Makhoul has developed work in a range of media which explored both the aesthetics of modernism and post-modernism as well as offering nuanced political critiques of what it means to be—and to become—Palestinian. From his sumptuous early paintings through his photographic and video practice, up to his most recent development of lenticular micro-lens printing technique, Makhoul has explored the intertextuality of form and content and art and politics.

Exploring the notion of the monograph itself, the introduction by noted art historians Jonathan Harris and August Jordan Davis examines the cultural theoretical and socio-political significance of Makhoul's two decades of practice. Included in this volume are seven essays and a substantial interview with Makhoul, which provide readings of Makhoul's work from the early 1990s to the present day. These include the first publications of two substantial essays (by Harris and Ryan Bishop) on Makhoul's most recent work, his ambitious 2012 installation Enter Ghost, Exit Ghost.

Al Hoash is a Jerusalem-based nonprofit Palestinian organization that seeks the development and elevation of the status of visual arts as a substantial and critical tool for communication, innovation, pleasure, free expression and national pride. Our work is based on the belief that the visual arts play a vital role in promoting the welfare, development and independent creative spirit of all people.

Al Hoash contributes to knowledge production and dissemination through programs that are critically driven, research-based and community linked. Our main objectives are fostering research and providing a platform for education and critical discourse; establishing strong links to engage and actively interact with our community and building bridges of cross-cultural exchange across the globe.
