With its experimental design, this handsome publication both concentrates and expands upon the topics dealt with in the project. Just as the participating artists juxtapose various media and disciplines in their work, so do a variety of essays, journalistic texts and poetry serve as a backdrop to the artistic creations showcased in the exhibit. The works of the artists are highlighted in a comprehensive section devoted exclusively to the exhibition. A wealth of photo essays, as well as interviews with curators and artists, authors and composers round out this unique and up-to-the-minute survey of the different cultural scenes in this artistically fascinating world region.
