Curated by Debra Singer.

The Dead Weight of a Quarrel Hangs: Documents from The Atlas Group Archive includes video projections, digital prints, and two performance-lectures, which are all components of the artist’s ongoing venture, The Atlas Group. As the name of both a project and a foundation, The Atlas Group researches and documents the contemporary history of Lebanon, with a particular emphasis both on the wars from 1975 to 1991, and on the consequences of war more broadly on life in cities such as Beirut, New York, Madrid, London, and Baghdad. Presenting a collection of photographic and video documents on subjects as varied as car bombs, horse racing, and captivity, The Atlas Group explores the ways that experiences of violence are formed, represented, and remembered.
