    Palestinian Art3

    Mark Thwaite Gannit Ankori's wonderful Palestinian Art is a beautifully produced gem of an art book for which publisher Reaktion Books should be highly praised. With almost twenty years of intensive research, countless studio visits and numerous interviews with the practitioners themselves behind her, Ankori, the Associate Professor of Art History at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, is the best critic and guide to the hidden splendour of Palestinian artistic work that one could hope for. Historically well-informed, Ankori's commentary is incisive and scholarly throughout. She shows us an art and a visual culture that goes well beyond the cliches about Palestinian society that we think we know from our newspapers. Life is more than the war; art is part of that life. Trauma and loss inform the art (and the art practice), but the art is not reducible to it. Ankori discusses the work of all kinds of artists, those working in the Palestinian territories, in Israel and those in exile. Her interpretations are incisive and intelligent and she writes well of the complexity of this hidden and powerful art. by Mark Thwaite
