The water is cool in the café

Bilal Khbeiz

The Water is cool in the café exhibits a series of short texts printed on postcards. These 19 postcards are complete unto theirselves with no need for either a sender or a receiver. They carry, as they ought to, an image that is known in public, and texts that are complete and intimate. Khbeiz’s writing, incoherent and self-involved, was a form of “horizontal writing” that made pronouncements at random and without concern or desire for mobilizing its reader in any political way.
