Records for Uncertain Times

Frem Civic Center 103G, Byblos campus

The Department of Art & Design is hosting a lecture titled: “Records for Uncertain Times” by visual artist and filmmaker Lamia Joreige.

Joreige will discuss her artistic practice, using archival documents and elements of fiction to reflect on history and its possible narration, and on the relationship between individual stories and collective memory. In her practice, she explores the possibilities of representing the Lebanese wars and their aftermath particularly in Beirut. Her work is essentially on time, the recordings of its trace, and its effects on us.

She was a fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University for the year 2016-2017, and was shortlisted for Artes Mundi 7, a UK leading biennial prize. She is a co-founder and board member of Beirut Art Center, which she co-directed rom 2009 to 2014.
