Tony Chakar (b. 1968, Lebanon) is an architect and writer. His work incorporates literature, philosophy and theory. Chakar is concerned with those new forms of symbolic resistance at work in the conflicts ravaging his corner of the world; he is interested in the survival of ideologies and myths involved in or opposed to liberal thought. Of significant interest to him is the circulation of images and texts on social media, both vernacular and insurrectionary.
