The Beirut Project

Nadim Karam

Between 1997 and 2000, more than 500 war-damaged buildings were systematically eradicated and major infrastructural works went underway in Beirut. Meanwhile, roads shifted, disappeared and were recreated. In this transitory climate, 20 different 5.5-meter high sculptures entered the city, embarking on an itinerant series of installations on bridges, squares, rooftops and finally aligning along the Mediterranean coast before disappearing.
