"The book of disappearances / The book of tractations" was written and conceived by Raul Ruiz as a simile of the multiedia installation "The expulsion of the Moors", his first museum piece, touring in the United States and Europe. As in the museum installation, the book underscores the irony and ambiguity of the Moorish and Christian history of Spain through reflecting and mirroring, as well as through the narrative illusion of historic fictions.
"The book of disappearances / The book of tractations" combines a collection of short fictions concerning the histories of Spain and Islam, both deeply rooted and interactive in that country. Christian and Moorish characters are re-created in a variety of tales about royal courts, the Inquisition, the army, the discovery of America, Velasquez, priest's tale, the leaden books of Sacromonte, the art of memory and the magic of forgetting, conversations between shadows, and mathematical equation depicting music and paintings.
Each fiction functions as a piece of the "puzzle" along with religious symbols and linked labyrinths. Shaping particular graphic elements and mirror images, Ruiz's work suggests recurring themes which are key elements in this particular history.
