Akram Zaatari
1966, Libano
Bio
Exhibitions

Akram Zaatari è nato nel 1966 a Saida, in Libano.

Vive e lavora a Beirut. Le sue opere esplorano la condizione del Libano del dopoguerra, indagandone gli aspetti politici e sociali. Considerata una fonte documentaria diretta, la fotografia è per Zaatari un mezzo con cui attribuire valore universa le a documenti privati. È il caso delle installazioni Nabih Awada’s letters from Askalan e Book of letters from family and friends (2007), che mostrano la corrispondenza dal carcere del detenuto libanese Nabih Awada, imprigionato durante la lotta di resistenza contro l’occupazione israeliana nel Libano meridionale.

Le opere di Zaatari fotografie, video ed installazioni sono state presentate presso il Centre pour l’Image Contemporaine di Ginevra (2004), la Biennale di San Paolo (2006), il Centre Pompidou di Parigi (2008), il Kunstverein di Monaco (2009).
