Al Mutanabbi Street Starts Here – Exeter UK

Catherine Cartwright is UK coordinator for this project: “Absence & Presence” is a printmaking response to the bombing of the bookseller’s quarter, Al Mutanabbi Street, in Baghdad on the 5th March 2007. It was exhibited in Exeter Library (UK) and Kaleider (UK) during February-April 2016. This film focuses on the events of the 4th March: the poetry marathon, artist book and bookmark workshops as well as the original prints created by artists from more then 20 countries.
