UMAM – The Hangar
Haret Hreik, next to al-Mahdy Mosque, Beirut
UMAM´s The Hangar presents the first solo exhibition by Sandra Schäfer in Lebanon. Displaying two large scale video-installations, Mleeta (2016) and Constructed Futures: Haret Hreik (2017), the artist returns to the location of her extended research from 2014 to 2016 on questions and intersections of architecture, geopolitical spaces, and propaganda. The video-installations are accompanied by 22 poster-fragments with which the artist appropriates stills from a film by the Waad Project, a massive reconstruction program in Haret Hreik after the war of 2006. The exhibition will be accompanied by an artist talk on the 27th of September with professor of urban studies and politics Mona Harb moderated by architect Joseph Rustom.
