On Lebanon and “Uncertain Times”

Lamia Joreige

The Markaz Review speaks to Lamia Joreige about Joreige's exhibition, Uncertain Times, the project she worked on while a Fellow at the Institute, and that is currently on view at the Marfa' gallery in Beirut.

“Uncertain Times” assembles drawings and texts by Joreige and presents them alongside selected archival documents and photographs from the World War I period in Lebanon and Palestine. Through these documents, drawn mostly from the Ottoman Imperial Archive in Istanbul, Turkey (but also from other sources), the viewer of the installation is exposed to fragments from a bygone world: censorship of the press, sectarianism, treason, executions, and protests.
