Published in conjunction with the exhibition 'Without Boundary: Seventeen Ways of Looking' organised by Fereshteh Daftari at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, February to May 2006. 'At a time when the Islamic world is the subject of extraordinary interest in the West, Without Boundary explores the work of a number of artists who come from that world but live elsewhere, in cities ranging from Paris to New York to Buenos Aires. How do these artists address the cultural legacy of Islam, and is their work connected by any common thread? Fereshteh Daftari, organizer of the MoMA exhibition that this book accompanies, proposes a pause in the rush to quick conclusions. Without Boundary also contains an essay by Homi Bhabha, the preeminent theorist and scholar of the postcolonial condition, and a prose piece by the Turkish writer and novelist Orhan Pamuk, author of My Name is Red and Snow.' - from the back cover
