The catalogue documents an exchange and collaboration between Tate Modern, London, and Darat al Funun. The resulting exhibition was both presented in London and in Amman. It was curated by Kasia Redzisz and Ala’ Younis.

“Out of Place” displayed the approaches of four different artists, all of them exploring the relationship between dominant political forces and personal and collective histories by looking at urban space, architectural structures and the condition of displacements. The publication contains short information about the artists as well as images of their works.
