Akram Zaatari
Akram Zaatari was born 1966 in Lebanon, and lives and works in Beirut. Zaatari has produced more than 50 films and videos, a dozen books, and countless installations of photographic material. He was one of a handful of young artists who emerged from the delirious but short-lived era of experimentation in Lebanon's television industry, which was radically reorganised after the country's civil war. Zaatari is a co-founder of the Arab Image Foundation, an artist-driven organisation devoted to the research and study of photography in the Arab world. His work was shown at Documenta13 in 2012, and he represented Lebanon at the Venice Bienniale in 2013. His films include three features: The Landing (2019), Twenty-Eight Nights and A Poem (2015) and This Day (2003).
