  • Reporting from Ramallah

    Price: $14.95

    The only Israelis this generation of Palestinians know are soldiers and settlers. For them, Israel is no more than a subsidiary of an army that knows no limits and settlements that know no borders. Recipient of the UNESCO Guillermo Camo World Press Freedom Prize in 2003, Amira Hass is the only Jewish Israeli correspondent on Palestinian affairs to live among the people about whom she reports. The child of Holocaust survivors, Hass prefers the title “expert in Israeli occupation,” and, as such, is relentless in her quest for both truth and justice.

He traces the historical roots of the modern avant-garde, which emerged from two different directions in the 19th century, with two distinct figures: the poet – the artistic avant-garde, and the communist – the political avant-garde. He follows the convergence of these two previously separate figures in the practice of the Situationists, and he further discusses the other side of the avant-garde’s ideological construction, the idea of “the missing people”. He finally inquires about the possibility of transcending the modern notion of the avant-garde as such; a possibility of the arrival – being the poet and the communist at the same time,...
