TAP's Database of Public Art Practices in Lebanon
Our Database of Public Art Practices is an on-going research project archiving public art interventions that have taken place in Lebanon from 1980 to present day.
Bit Téléférique took the public on a “touristic” trip inside the Jounieh cable cart. Through interactions with audience members, the journey uncovered narratives that aimed at looking, from high above, at Jounieh with a critical eye. When faced with a traumatic situation, some people are able to get out of their own bodies and watch themselves from above as a way of distancing themselves from the trauma. Building on this idea, Dictaphone Group invited the audience to get out of the city and observe it from the top of the mountain. ‘Perhaps by being able to re-imagine the city, we will be able to survive it.’
