Bodies and Power (2020)

Power structures that in normal circumstances operate through the creation and manipulation of lack, ambush and surround bodies in revolt, physically, in the form of the brutality of the agents of the state, and politically by appropriating the momentum of the revolution in reforms that reinforce governance, renders it more invisible, more abstract.

The camera becomes a representation of bodies at the point of conversion of these power dynamics. Footage from the frontline of the revolution of October 2019 in Lebanon shared through social media, stand witness, through blurry frames, to the violence of the encounter of bodies and power.
