In Times of Agony we Persist​

We are committed, more than ever, to our community of artists, collaborators, team members, and to the people of Beirut.

Togetherness drives our organisation and continues to shape its programs and ways of operating. We are – and will continue – to actively work on radical curatorial strategies to address the present moment and provide solidarity and care.

Art, Ecology, and the Commons

A ten-day rehearsal that revolves around an existing 2,000 m2 site on the border of the Beirut River in Sin el Fil, suburbs of Beirut, Lebanon. The site was partially planted in May 2019 by theOtherDada in the framework of an urban afforestation initiative. The training will be building on this pilot experiment aiming at improving environmental conditions near the river and adopting a participatory approach of placemaking through art and ecology.

The Database on Public Art Practices

Projects range from public sculpture to participatory art with over 400 entries classified and tagged according to type and temporality. This repository of information serves at once as a virtual time-traveling museum and an important source of information for further research projects and knowledge production.
