Walid Raad: I long to meet the masses once again

Walid Raad: I long to meet the masses once again
Library Shelf Location 18.RAAD
Publication Date 01 Feb 2021

This eye-catching booklet is published with an exhibition of hybrid wooden objects by Walid Raad. The Lebanese-American artist’s practice spans almost every discipline, from photographs, videos, and lectures, to performances, sculptures, collages, and drawings. Raad’s approach is based on the assumption that artworks are not constants, but rather mutable quantities that change meaning and thus also their form during cultural or physical transfer. For instance, in dealing with the Lebanese wars, he uses the format of a seemingly authentic archive to confront the Western viewer with a society that has lost a unifying narrative.
