Works by Adonis and Haider

In 2007, Darat al Funun hosted the exhibition of a collaborative project between Adonis, Syrian poet, and Haider, Iraqi painter. Together they explored the aesthetic relationships between poetry and visual text. Works from 2005, 2006 and 2007 were included in the exhibition. It was organized in cooperation with the French Cultural Center in Amman and toured the Arab World and Europe after being shown at Darat al Funun. This exhibition catalogue contains examples of the artists’ works, their biographies and an exhibition view.
