A workshop by Resident Professor Walid Raad
Workshop II of Home Workspace Program 2014-15
Setups / Situations / Institutions
January 5 – 16, 2015 at Ashkal Alwan

For the past seven years, Raad has been working on an art project titled Scratching on things I could disavow which proceeds from the recent emergence of new infrastructures for the arts in the MENASA region, with particular emphasis on recent developments in Lebanon, UAE and Qatar. Raad’s project engages the concepts, gestures, and forms made possible by these infrastructures as well as their ideological, economic, historical, and political frames. Raad’s workshop will parallel his own ongoing inquiry and interests and as such will include lectures, presentations, and interviews with the artists, writers, theorists, historians, activists and others who continue to inform his project.
