A two-volume set published on the occasion of 'Before History', the exhibition of the 2015 The Abraaj Group Art Prize at Art Dubai. Previous works by shortlisted artists Sarnath Banerjee (India), Setareh Shahbazi (Iran) and Mounira Al Solh (Lebanon) are presented in Vol No. 1. Faux départ (False Start), the newly commissioned project of winning artist Yto Barrada (Morocco), is presented in Vol No. 2 in the form of an artist's book. As a whole, 'Before History' explores the layering of time through historical artifice, beginning with the notion of history as a constructed sphere, constantly in flux, simultaneously being buried and excavated.

Includes essays by guest curator Omar Kholeif, artist Q&A's (Vol No. 1), and biographies.
