The book, which Baz created in collaboration with Nadine Touma's Dar Onboz publishing house, first appeared as a supplement in the March 2014 edition of "The Outpost," a quarterly magazine.On the facing page, one or two words of text provide a satirical spin, making light of serious imagery and imbuing innocent objects with darker twist.Six vans flying the Israeli flag are "visitors," and seven severed body parts are "errors". Eight UNIFIL soldiers, their weapons a stark contrast to their cheerful thumbs-up poses, are "tourist attractions". Baz has amplified her book's bleak humor to create a conceptually powerful exhibition, centered on the idea of a tour, in which visitors in search of Palestine encounter first the book, then a wall and finally a shop.The wall, planks of unvarnished wood nearly 2-meters high, is punctuated by small shelves, each bearing an ink pad and a wooden stamp embossed with a single image from the book.
