There is no sea in Beirut / (2015)

In the framework of the three-day symposium organized by the French Institute, the Orient Institute and the Beirut Municipality on public spaces, Temporary Art Platform commissioned Rani Al-Rajji for a performative city walk that took place on May 23, 2015 (made possible with the support of the French Institute). There is no sea in Beirut tells stories of a city, a harbour, a shoreline and a public space in search for an identity in constant escape. Rani Al Rajji is an architect and an urban storyteller. He is the co-founder of Studio Beirut, an initiative that collects experiences around public spaces and organizes city walks and tours based on true or fictitious accounts.
