What forms, stories, gestures and concepts are made possible by wars? How are certain events lived but not experienced? How does violence affect art, culture and tradition in material and immaterial ways? The work of the artist Walid Raad, who was born in Chbanieh, Lebanon, in 1967 and currently lives, works and teaches in New York, has been revolving around these questions for 20 years now. His oeuvre includes photographs, videos, sculptures, installations and performances.
