Acting as curators, the editors take the artists’ projects out of the printed pages of the journal and materialize them in a physical space of 392Rmeil393, a historical building in Beirut’s Achrafieh district. The small exhibit consists of enlarged printed texts and photographs ofAras Ozgun’s Black Sea, a site where nature intersects with erased histories and unspoken politics; Honza Zamojski shows an installation that consists of conceptual, audio and visual notes from a Transatlantic journey; Media Farzin and Alessandro Balteo Yazbeck video installation Chronoscope, 1951, 11pm engaging Cold-War politics is screened in the garden; and Kasper Kovitzpresents a famous artists’ course taught to the nuns of a convent in the form of large prints. The exhibition engages with artists’ works spatially, while going beyond the two-dimensional and virtual working context in which the editorial cooperation unfolds.
