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.
