MIXED FEELINGS II. IDENTITY, 'RACE' AND FAMILY IN LEBANON various media and installation, 2014 - 2015

The second part of the Mixed Feelings project entitled Identity, 'Race; and Family in Lebanon focused on the mixed heritage Lebanese families and continued its research into issues of racism, 'othering', ad identity within this group of under-represented part of Lebanese society. For the first time it showcased a selection of different materials (text, photos, documents) from the personal archives of 16 Lebanese families (of African or Asian heritage) combined with quotes and audio pieces created from interviews conducted with participating families.

The project was exhibited in ArtScape in Beirut in January - February 2015.

Mixed Feelings is a social-visual project that uses a combination of images and words to highlight the issue of racism in contemporary Lebanon. It aims at unpacking and examining 'race', racialization, racism, 'othering', and different modes of exclusion and inclusion in Lebanon; and creating dialogue and debate around these issues / subjects.

Project in cooperation with the Heinrich Boell Foundation - Middle East Office.
