The Time Is Out Of Joint is a multi-space project; this two-volume publication is one of its manifestations that adopt spatial and temporal strategies inspired by the idea of time as a fluid space and space as frozen time.

These chapters are concepts extended from the contexts of three events that are re- or pre-enacted in an exhibition project that took place in Beirut, Sharjah and Gwangju.
