Contested landscapes, emergent archives: Orient-Institut Beirut, 29th of August till the 13th of September. by Sirine Fattouh

Contested landscapes, emergent archives
Liliana Gómez (University of Zurich)
in collaboration with Iris Fraueneder (University of Zurich)

The exhibition relates to the archive as a creative force and to emergent material archives as depositories to unfold ambivalences, contradictions, and the incommensurability of cultural work and the memory of landscape. It aims to discuss the long lasting degradation of landscapes contesting the often invisibilized environmental and political violence.
