About

Paula Cooper Gallery is pleased to present a new series of works by Walid Raad,
entitled Better be watching the clouds (2000/2017). The presentation will include a selection of fifteen plates from the series, which shows pages from a book of flora native to the Middle East where the heads of political leaders involved in, or contemporary with, the Lebanese Civil War appear as efflorescences. Its brightly colored blossoms budding with black and white photos of politicians recall the history of political critique and photomontage by artists such as Hannah Höch and John Heartfield.
