The Search for Power at Belluard Bollwerk

June 28, 7:00 pm - June 30, 8:30 pm

History takes shape between zones of light and zones of shadow. But when we decide to shine a light on those elements that have been buried or left in the dark, they too can be read and scrutinized. In The Search for Power, we are invited to join Lebanese artist Tania El Khoury and her husband, historian Ziad Abu-Rish, in an unusual collective investigation. Following yet another blackout, the couple embarked upon a wide-ranging inquiry into the history of power cuts in Lebanon. The result is a dizzying, vast fresco revealing the sparks that fly when colonial powers, resistance movements and nation-building all rub against each other. A tale told in two voices brimming with love and with rage, an attempt to short-circuit the power dynamics that seep into the remotest corners of our lives.
