How do art practices re-inscribe 'being' and 'becoming' in spatial terms where history, meanings, and narratives are not privileged over space? Questioning the notion of space as the realm of the static, the locus of history and of unchanging identities, Dia Batal and Tania El Khoury's body of work negotiates conceptual and physical borders both within and between the spaces of nations. In Beirut, London, Beirut, the artists discuss strategies deployed to reconfigure the social and the political, through site-specific performances, psycho-geography and cartographic art practices. The talk will address questions surrounding the dynamism of space in the articulation of social relations and the unfolding of histories, in the context of both war-torn Beirut and multicultural" London.
