There’s a really interesting exhibition taking place at Beyt Amir entitled “Temporary – Metamorphosis of a city: Beirut 1870 – 2052“. The exhibition is a tribute to Beirut through photographs, prints, and installations showing how Beirut has evolved from 1870 until now. Beyt Amir is a beautiful old house built over 100 years ago and one of the last remaining symbols of Beirut’s rich heritage.
If you’re wondering why 2052, it’s because there’s an illustration realized by Swiss-Lebanese comic artist Alex Baladi imagining a Beirut that hasn’t lived a war in 2052. It is presented in a playful 22x22cm puzzle format that can be assembled into a three meters long image. [Source]
