A Conversation with an Imagined Israeli Filmmaker Named Avi Mograbi
Co-founder of the Arab Image Foundation, Akram Zaatari is an endlessly creative curator and artist exploring the history and politics of the Middle East through photography. In this engrossing book, he invents a “conversation” with an imagined Israeli filmmaker, and uses it to explore the encounter between subjective, personal history and violent historical events. Zaatari looks at the history of the Israeli wars against Lebanon through letters, photographs and personal stories by former Lebanese prisoners in Israel, which the artist then presents in videos. All of these elements are perfectly edited to tell a deep and engaging story. Zaatari’s Arab Image Foundation is dedicated to promoting photography and the photographic image in the Middle East, North Africa and the Arab diaspora.
