Description for the presentation 2016-2017 in the National Museum of Modern Art

Akram Zaatari’s work is rooted in the political, social and also intimate history of his country, Lebanon. His videos and photographs often have their starting points in records – diaries, articles, TV or radio news programmes – raising the question of how history is written – how “truths” are both revealed and obscured in the production and circulation of images. Saida, June 6, 1982, showing camera movements is a photographic montage that presents the bombardment of the city of Saida on 6 June 1982, when the Israeli army invaded Lebanon, making visible the very composition of the image.
