adonis and omar qattan discuss islam, sufism & arabic literature

A snatch of video from last night's delightful conversation between Adonis and Omar Qattan on 'Islam, Sufism & Arabic Literature', part of the 'A Tribute to Adonis' programme running at the Mosaic Rooms in London from 3 February to 30 March. The programme includes an exhibition of Adonis's art works in the venue's ground floor and basement spaces. The conversation started with discussion of Adonis's controversial PhD thesis of 40 years ago, Athabet wal Mutahawwil - The Permanent and the Evolving - which includes a historical anthology of Arabic poetry. Another key work to feature during the event was of course Adonis's Sufism and Surrealism .
