On March 5, 2007, a car bomb exploded on al-Mutanabbi Street, the ancient
street of booksellers, poets and writers, located at the literary and
cultural heart of Baghdad, Iraq.
The attack killed 30 people and injured scores more. As part of an
international response to this event, the Cambridge Arts Council presents
"Al-Mutanabbi Street Starts Here,"
a three-part exhibition of 261 artist books made by 260 international
artists from 24 countries. This exhibition events aims to bear witness to
the events
on Al-Mutanabbi Street, and to collectively affirm that the right to a free
exchange of ideas and culture in public space is never to be taken for
granted.****
