Mokhallad Rasem has been collecting personal notes for twenty years: he notes down daily images that appear in his dreams, memories that pop up and impressions that tumble into his imagination from everyday reality.

And all this for the first time in his mother tongue, Arabic.
Journal d’un lit vide is a poetic invitation to think about the passing of time, about distance and intimacy, about having to say goodbye and start over again.
