  • FANTASMIC OBJECTS: ART AND SOCIALITY FROM LEBANON, 1920-1950

    by Kirsten L. Scheid

    Published by: Indiana University Press
    374 Pages, 21 color illus., 38 b&w illus.

  • In Fantasmic Objects, Kirsten L. Scheid offers a striking study of both modern art in Lebanon and modern Lebanon through art. By focusing on the careers of Moustapha Farrouk and Omar Onsi, forefathers of an iconic national repertoire, and their rebellious student Saloua Raouda Choucair, founder of an antirepresentational, participatory art, Scheid traces an emerging sense of what it means to be Lebanese through the evolution of new exhibition, pedagogical, and art-writing practices.
