VIDEO: Raafat Majzoub

Swaying between seriousness and play, architect, writer and artist Raafat Majzoub’s work is based on the notion of performing reality until reality complies. For Moussem Cities: Beirut, he will be giving a talk and presenting a two-week-long performance installation.
The talk is rooted in a weekly column Majzoub wrote for the Beirut-based Al-Akhbar newspaper titled ‘The Farewell Chronicles’. The series provides an interesting insider’s perspective on the city of Beirut. For the opening of Moussem Cities, he wrote a new text by way of introduction to the city and reflecting on publication, making-public, in a place like Beirut.

With an annually recurring city cycle, Moussem’s Nomadic Arts Centre offers an insight into contemporary Arab societies and the dynamic of their cities. Every year, an Arab city is a guest in the capital of Europe. Over the course of this ten-day festival, guest artists, relevant thinkers and cultural players tell the story of their city through their work.
