Walid Raad - I Long To Meet The Masses Once Again

Publisher Roma Publications

ISBN 9789492811905

Idea Code 21064

This eye-catching booklet is published with an exhibition of hybrid wooden objects by Lebanese-American artist Walid Raad at Kunst-Station Sankt Peter Köln in Germany. Raad’s practice spans almost every artistic discipline, from photographs, videos, and lectures, to performances, sculptures, collages, and drawings. The artist’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.
