For the past seven years, Walid Raad has been working on an art project titled Scratching on things I could disavow which proceeds from the recent emergence of new infrastructures for the arts in the MENASA region, with particular emphasis on recent developments in Lebanon, UAE and Qatar. Raad’s project engages the concepts, gestures, and forms made possible by these infrastructures as well as their ideological, economic, historical, and political frames. Raad’s workshop will parallel his own ongoing inquiry and interests and as such will include lectures, presentations, and interviews with the artists, writers, theorists, historians, activists and others who continue to inform his project.
The loudest muttering is over is Workshop II of HWP 2014-15: Setups / Situations / Institutions.
The lecture is open to the public. Registration for the workshops is now closed due to limited capacity.
