Joana Hadjithomas & Khalil Joreige - Home Works Forum 9  | Joana Hadjithomas & Khalil Joreige

Ashkal Alwan announces the 9th edition of Home Works: A Forum on Cultural Practices taking place in Beirut between November 2023 and October 2024. This edition will gradually unfold into two chapters at Ashkal Alwan, the Arab Image Foundation, Beirut Art Center, Madina theater, Metro Al Madina, the Sunflower theater, and the Sursock Museum.

Ashkal Alwan's flagship forum features group exhibitions, artist projects, and commissions; talks, panels, and readings; music, dance, and theater performances; film and video screenings; and publications, and has consistently taken place in Beirut since 2002 in spite of perpetual instability.

The 8th edition of Home Works opened, not auspiciously, in Beirut on the first evening of what became the October 2019 uprising. The following day, it was indefinitely postponed. Today, Palestine has entered an extremely dark cycle of violence and bloodshed, which Lebanon is not immune to, forcing us to consider how to confront an unbearable present and bleak future. We are convinced that Home Works remains of vital importance to our many communities and critical discourse, especially in resisting the rise of fear-mongering and the unfolding institutional moral crises.
