Named one of the top 50 Books of 2015 by Design Observer and the AIGA.

Walid Raad is one of the leading artists of his generation and an influential voice in art from the Middle East. His works explore historical, political, economic, and aesthetic facts and fictions related to the Lebanese wars and to "Arab" art, and cast doubt on the veracity of photographic and video documentation. Published to accompany the first comprehensive exhibition of his work in the United States, this catalogue surveys almost three decades of Raad's practice in a variety of mediums- including photography, video, and performance- and features his most momentous bodies of work, such as his long-term projects The Atlas Group (1989-2004) and Scratching on things I could disavow (2007-ongoing).

Essays by curator Eva Respini and scholar Finbarr Barry Flood place Raad's work in the international context of contemporary artmaking, and the book includes a special eighteen-page visual contribution by Raad himself.
