Facing the Wall explores the ways in which the Israeli/West Bank barrier has been used as a canvas on which artists, whether Palestinians and Israelis or foreigners, display their work.

The different cultural arenas on either side of the wall dictate and give impulses to different modes of expression and uses of visual vocabulary; this tension is reflected in the layout of this book, which displays works from either side of the wall alongside each other.
