Kamal Aljafari, La Ribot, Jumana Manna: aftercinema

May 20, 2015 6:00 pm

On the occasion of the opening of aftercinema exhibition, Beirut art center organizes on the same day a talk with the three artists: Kamal Aljafari, La Ribot, and Jumana Manna.
The talk will shed light on the practices of each artist and on the exhibition as a meeting point among these very different practices.
Aftercinema offers its own interpretation of Jean Luc-Godard’s statement: “cinema is not a reproduction of reality; it is the forgetfulness of reality. But if someone records this forgetfulness, remembering is then possible and perhaps it would allow us to achieve the real.” it does not look at films with the intention of knowing how they were made but in order to measure their potential effect on us and on our lives.
