Many thanks to all involved in helping to create the Bidoun Artists' Cinema and Video Lounge at Art Dubai 2008 , particularly the participating artists - Akram Zaatari, Ziad Antar, Hossam El Sawah, Rosalind Nashashibi, Iman Issa, Nadine Khan, Shahryar Nashat, Yasmeen Al Awadi, Walter Benjamin, Matthew Grover, Anna Witt, Shahab Fotouhi, Yoshua Okon, Chris Evans, LouLou Cherinet, David Maljkovic and Haluk Akakce - and our design partners, Traffic and the Khatt Foundation. The cinema featured presentations on the hour, every hour, during the fair, while screens in the lounge showed videos on a loop. Curators Nav Haq, Tirdad Zolghadr, Negar Azimi, Hassan Khan, Antonia Carver and Lisa Farjam participated in discussions with students and local filmmakers and artists, and there was a session on video included in the Global Art Forum. The three programs will now tour to the International Academy of Art, Palestine.
