DISCURSIVE TALKS: Re-imagining Beirut’s Park
a film projection & talk with Lasse Lau
The continuing closure of Beirut’s park has led to a physical space that only exists in the minds of people. In Pine Nuts, the mind frees itself from the associative and historical memories where physical detachment informs new social utopian aspirations. The film will be followed by a discussion with 98 WEEKS and DISCURSIVE FORMATIONS.
Lasse Lau (born 1974) is a queer and social activist, visual artist and filmmaker based in New York and Copenhagen.
