BETWEEN STATES. Simon Faulkner and David Reeb. Black Dog Publishing Limited, London, 2015. 176 pp. with 82 ills. (65 col.). 24 x 18 cm. ISBN 9781908966384 In English.
Publisher's description: Between States addresses relationships between aesthetics and politics through the exploration of different locations and political conditions. The book focuses on the complex geography of Israel/Palestine, where borders and the nature of political statehood remain unresolved. The title Between States refers to the unfinished political nature of this area, while also describing the condition of in-between-ness defined by the book itself as it shifts from artistic concerns to more explicitly political subjects. This in-between-ness also relates to the complex spatial relationships between the UK, Israel, and the West Bank that were involved in the development of the dialogue between the two authors. Between States is made up of a set of textual and visual fragments that move the reader between different forms of representation and knowledge: from paintings to photographic images and from texts involving varying degrees of abstraction to first-person accounts of places and events. The uncertainty that defines the political conditions explored through these different forms is echoed in the sense of uncertainty created by the overall format of the book.
