Description

Published to mark the display of library of exile at the British Museum, this book reflects on the themes raised by de Waal’s thought-provoking work of art. An essay from Hartwig Fischer, Director of the British Museum, positions the artwork within the wider context of the Museum’s collection, highlighting the dialogue between objects from across time and throughout history and the contemporary. Finally, de Waal concentrates on the work itself, its journey to the British Museum via Venice and Dresden, and its future role in the foundation of the New University Library in Mosul.
