Public Seminar 10: Walid Raad and Jalal Toufic, The Withdrawal of Tradition. Past a Surpassing Disaster
Public Seminar 10. Led by Walid Raad and Jalal Toufic, this seminar series explores Toufic's concept of "the withdrawal of tradition past a surpassing disaster", which he first advanced in his books Over-Sensitivity (1996) and then elaborated further in Forthcoming (2000). For the first night, Raad will speak about The Atlas Group, a fifteen-year project undertaken between 1989 and 2004, and about his current research about the history of modern and contemporary art in the Arab world. Days 2 and 3 will be dedicated to an introduction by Toufic.
