Where does an archive end and ‘real’ life begin? How to dream a dream of (migrant) home without waking up from a nightmare?
Ania Dabrowska travels to Beirut for a month-long Artist’s Residency at Ashkal Alwan to work on the project’s book (Book Works), exhibition works and the online archive of Diab’s collection with the Arab Image Foundation.
14 – 24 October 2013
Ania Dabrowska and Diab Alkarssifi traveled to Lebanon for the first project production trip: to visit Diab’s home city of Baalbek, to locate the remaining part of Diab’s archival collection, to meet some of the families whose albums constitute the collection, to visit locations prominent in the archive in Beirut, Baalbek, to locate more archival practices in Beirut.
