Border Crossing: Video Installations by Dictaphone Group

West Galleries

Kennedy Museum of Art hosts two video installation works by Beirut-based Dictaphone Group on the subject of border crossings: Stories of Refuge and Nothing to Declare. The museum will host Tania El Khoury, co-founder of Dictaphone Group, to discuss these two projects as well as her solo practice. Dictaphone Group is a research and performance collective that creates live art events based on multidisciplinary study of space. It is a collaborative project initiated by live artist Tania El Khoury and architect/urbanist Abir Saksouk-Sasso. Together along with various collaborators, they have been creating site specific performances informed by research in a variety of places like a cable car, a fisherman’s boat, and a discontinued bus. The aim of these projects is to question our relationship to the city, and redefine its public space.
