Aug 5, 2017 – Aug 19, 2017
Beirut, Lebanon
Research Question
This workshop focuses on ‘invisible’ modernism in the city of Beirut: the unfortunate modernist buildings that did not survive this very same war and economy. The final output is one large continuous collage oblique drawing of Beirut, plotting (and imagining) in it the invisibles, making them visible again.
