Abstract (English)

"Based in Beirut and New York The Atlas Group is a project and foundation created by Walid Raad to locate, preserve, study and produce audio, visual, literary and other artifacts that shed light on the contemporary history of Lebanon. This publication juxtaposes two texts by Lebanese writer and theorist Jalal Toufic to a series of photographs and video stills by Walid Raad and The Atlas Group. The archives of The Atlas Group and the documents that they produce refer to the recent Lebanese civil war and address not only the subject of memory, historical truth and the representation of the event but also reflect upon notions of trauma and disaster. Accompanied by a multi-page fold out of images from the video, We Can Make the Rain But No One Came To Ask" -- Publisher's web site.

Résumé

« Cet ouvrage juxtapose deux textes de l'écrivain et théoricien libanais Jalal Toufic à une suite d'images de Walid Raad et The Atlas Group. Les archives du Atlas Group et les documents qui en sont issus, tous en rapport avec la guerre civile au Liban, réfléchissent non seulement sur le sujet de la mémoire, de la représentation historique et de la diffusion de l'événement mais aussi sur la notion de traumatisme et de désastre » -- Site web de l'éditeur.
