Conference by Lynn Kodeih
At Saradar Offices
Saradar Collection is organizing a series of conferences for the members of the Saradar Group around its art collection in order to discover some recurring themes in the works of modern and contemporary Lebanese artists.
War Diaries is the second conference in the series around the Saradar Collection.
It proposes to look closely at the different methods used by Lebanese artists to illustrate the quotidian in times of War.
We will focus on processes such as photo albums, diaries, blogs and other approaches to record their personal histories.
