Akram Zaatari - Earth of Endless Secrets
Earth of Endless Secrets refers to Zaatari’s ongoing research project, unearthing and examining a wide range of documents that testify to the current cultural and political conditions of Lebanon. Zaatari’s artistic practice involves the study and investigation of the way these documents straddle, conflate, or confuse notions of history and memory. With an almost archaeological eye, he reveals the intimate layers of history contained in records of everyday experience. Edited by Karl Bassil and Akram Zaatari. Essays by Rasha Salti, Hannah Feldman, Laura U. Marks and Kaelen Wilson-Goldie.
