LET’S BE HONEST, THE WEATHER HELPED
15 Februar 2020 00:00 - 10 May 2020 00:00
This Walid Raad retrospective features documents and scenarios that he either wishes existed or fears are already in existence.We also meet the artist himself in a comprehensive performance work.
Walid Raad engages how violence affects bodies, minds, culture and tradition. In his photographs, videotapes, sculptures, texts and mixed media installations, Raad proceeds from historical events to imagine seemingly ludicrous, bizarre, and wondrous situations and documents. A performance at the intersection between lecture, guided tour and theatre is centrally placed in the exhibition.
Walid Raad was born in 1967 in Lebanon. He currently lives in Medusa, in upstate New York.
