Uninterrupted Fugue features a selection of critical essays about the art of Palestinian artist Kamal Boullata. Written by leading scholars and appearing for the first time in a single volume, this range of analytical perspectives on art and exile, modernity and tradition offers rare insights to readers interested in contemporary art beyond the Western canon.
 
The contributors include Abdelkebir Khatibi, Hans Belting, Jean Fisher, Jose Miguel Puerta Vilchez, Dorothea Schöne and Omar Kholeif, among others. Exploring Boullata's artistic trajectory over forty years, they examine his revolutionary technique of blending temporally and geographically distinct elements into thought-provoking works of universal appeal. Readers interested in contemporary art beyond the western canon will discover in this lavishly illustrated book rare insights into an aesthetic where the boundary between verbal and visual expression is surprisingly permeable, and the hallmarks of modernism merge with traditions rooted in Byzantine and Islamic art.
