From the War on Terror to resistance in Ramallah and traumatic
dislocation in the Middle East, Berger explores the uses of art as an
instrument of political resistance. Visceral and passionate, Hold
Everything Dear is a profound meditation on the far extremes of human
behaviour, and the underlying despair. Looking at Afghanistan,
Palestine, and Iraq, he makes an impassioned attack on the poverty and
loss of freedom at the heart of such unnecessary suffering.
These essays offer reflections on the political at the core of artistic expression and even at the center of human existence itself.
