Akram Zaatari, artist, lives and works in Beirut. He is the author of about forty videos, on issues about post-war Lebanon, especially the way television mediates territorial conflicts and wars, the logic of religious and national resistance movements, and the circulation and production of images in the context of today's geographic division in the Middle East.
