Works by Ahlam Shibli

This book presents three series of photographs by Ahlam Shibli, featuring comments by three renowned art historians. Each series consists of 30 to 50 photographs and deals with diverse narratives of displacement and concepts of “home”. The series Arab Al Sbaih (2007) and The Valley (2007-08) have been exhibited under the title “Why did you leave the forest empty!?” at Darat al Funun in 2010. Parts of Goter (2002-03) have been included in the exhibition “Out of Place” in 2011, a collaboration between Tate Modern, London, and Darat al Funun.
