Lecture by Bassem Saad about their contribution to the exhibition “Illiberal Lives”

Bassem Saad is an artist and writer born in Beirut. Their work explores historical rupture, infrastructure, spontaneity, and difference, through film, performance, and sculpture, as well as through essays and fiction. With an emphasis on past and present forms of struggle, they attempt to place scenes of intersubjective exchange within their world-historical frames. Bassem’s work has been presented and screened at MoMA, CPH:DOX, Triangle-Asterides, Busan Biennale, and Transmediale. Their most recent film, Congress of Idling Persons, received Special Mention in the New:Vision Award category at CPH:DOX 2022. Their writing appears in The New Inquiry, Jadaliyya, FailedArchitecture, and The Funambulist. They are currently a fellow at the Berlin Program for Artists.
