WEBINAR WITH ARTISTS JOANA HADJITHOMAS & KHALIL JOREIGE: IN CONVERSATION WITH JOANNA CHEVALIER
The artists and filmakers Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige question the fabrication of representations, the construction of imaginaries and the writing of contemporary history. They are interested in the traces of the invisible and the absent, in stories kept secret such as the missing people from the Lebanese civil war, a forgotten space project, geological and archaeological cores, or the strange consequences of Internet scams and spams. Their films, including ), ISMYRNA (2016), The Lebanese Rocket Society (2013), Je Veux Voir (2008) and A Perfect Day (2005), have been shown and awarded in the largest international film festivals.
Their artworks have been exhibited in numerous museums including lately the Centre Pompidou, Jeu de Paume and Musée d’Art Moderne; the Victoria & Albert Museum, British Museum and Whitechapel Gallery; Guggenheim, MIT Boston, Haus der Kunst, Sharjah Art Foundation, Acropolis Museum and Home Works Forum, as well as many biennales including Istanbul, Lyon, Sharjah, Kochi, Gwangju and Venice. In 2017, they were awarded the Marcel Duchamp Prize, for the project Unconformities.
