Bus Cemetery- Article in Ibraaz

We see the lack of public transport in Lebanon and its ‘death’ in our city as an extension of the lack of public spaces such as beaches, parks and pavements. This is why our project Bus Cemetery came about and how it was given conceptual form.

To read the whole article in Ibraaz Magazine on our project “Bus Cemetery” written by Abir Saksouk and Tania El Khoury, please click here. The article includes the sound piece from the show (performed by Petra Serhal; sound design by Ramzi Mady.)

The Sea Is This Way

We were asked to guest edit the Fall 2013 edition of ArteZine (ArteEast). Based on “This Sea Is Mine” project, we decided to discuss the issue of access to the sea in several Arab cities. We asked the contribution of activists, artists and researchers from Lebanon, Jordan, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Syria and Palestine. The questions we collectively raised tackle issues of neo-liberal development policies, conceptions of public space, and alternative social practices as resistance.

This is a short summary about the idea, and here is a link to this issue of ArteZine where you would find links to the editorial note as well as all essays.

Access to the sea is more than an individual right to a natural resource. It is a collective right, the absence of which shapes our relationship to the city. Ironically, private beach resorts, hotels, and exclusive marinas, with walls, gates and entrance fees, appear on the coasts of many of the cities and towns we inhabit. The continual growth of such projects, in addition to militarized areas and gated communities in several Arab cities indicate that the situation is not an individual phenomenon. Whether deployed by private companies, ruling classes, or state institutions, these interventions on the coast result in the re-organization of the production of the built environment. What are the conditions that produced the privatization of our coasts? Can we contest the definition of the public space as related to the notion of ownership? What can we learn from observing alternative communal practices in open spaces in our cities? And how can we reclaim our right to access these spaces.

Contribution in "Practicing the Public" (Arabic)

“Practicing the Public” is a publication collecting research-based work on shared and public spaces in the city, through mapping, archival documentation, photography and ethnography. As described by its editors, the publication ”digs beyond the apparent dichotomies between public and private spaces in an effort to understand what makes public space such a complex minefield in Lebanon”. It was distributed in October 2015 with As-Safir paper.

Dictaphone Group was asked to contribute an article about Beirut’s coast based on This Sea Is Mine project. You can read the entire publication in Arabic by downloading it on this link. Our article is on pages 54-55.
