This is part of a traveling exhibition of more than 100 artists’ books made by international artists from 24 countries. The books and broadsides in this exhibit were made in response to the  March 5, 2007 car bomb that exploded on Al-Mutanabbi Street, the ancient street of booksellers, poets and writers, located at the literary and cultural heart of Baghdad, Iraq. This exhibition, curated by Beau Beausoleil and Sarah Bodman, aims to bear witness to the events on Al-Mutanabbi Street, and to collectively affirm that the right to a free exchange of ideas and culture in public space is never to be taken for granted.
