Points of Contact | Group Exhibition


Date: January 27 – March 10, 2018
Location: Goethe Institut Libanon

The exhibition and public program Points of Contact brings together multi-media responses and investigations into the architecture of the built environment in Lebanon, and its impact on a human bodily experience. The participating artists, theorists, activists, lawyers and architects will explore an interpenetration of private and public spheres that takes effect through capitalism and conflict. The exhibition will change and evolve over its duration, being constructed, and reconstructed as each participant will present their work through screenings, conversations, performances, lectures, and walking tours, taking place across two experimental roundtable events on January 27 and February 17, 2018. These events aim to create a platform for discussion between the participating projects as well as with the visiting audience.

With the participation of: Shakeeb Abu Hamdan, George Arbid, Marwa Arsanios, Rayya Badran, Habib Battah, Vanessa Bowles, Hiba Farhat, Dima Hamadeh, Samar Kanafani, Helene Kazan, Jessika Khazrik, Fadi Mansour, Ayat Noureddine, Yoriko Otomo, Mohamed Safa, Rania Stephan, Sandra Schaefer. A project by the Media Lounge of Goethe-Institut Libanon, curated by Helene Kazan, in collaboration with the Arab Center for Architecture and the British Council, Lebanon.
