Cinema Lebanon: Benefit Screening In De Balie Sep 9

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 9 September | 18.00 h, 20.00 h, 22.00 h Cinema Libanon: Charity Screening Entrance: euro 10,- | combination ticket euro 25,- Location: De Balie, Kleine-Gartmanplantsoen 10, Amsterdam URL: www.

With introductions by Pierre Sarraf (director Né à Beyrouth) +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Lebanon, and more specifically Beirut, still conjure two very dichotomous and cliché images in the West: either the lamented former glory of the pearl of the Middle East, or the atrocities of a 15-year protracted civil war. With the media saturation of the recent war between Israel and Hizbullah still fresh, and the shaky promise of a brittle ceasefire, Lebanon once again risks to fall prey to stereotyping. In defiance of the war and in solidarity with the humanitarian crisis in Lebanon, De Balie organises an evening of films, documentaries and videos by Lebanese makers, in collaboration with the Lebanese production house and film festival Né à Beyrouth. The selection of films are testimony to the resistance of Lebanese artists to a historical and cultural amnesia, and show that being rooted in contemporary Lebanon is as much a commemoration of an untold past, as it is a reflection on and of the present.

With thanks to: Pierre Sarraf (Né à Beyrouth), Joanna Hadjithomas & Khalil Joreige, Celluloid Dreams, Akram Zaatari, and other participating artists. Ticket sale donated to humantiarian relief causes in Lebanon.

You are invited to contribute to the creation of a Free Press

Free Press

This summer and fall you are invited to contribute to the creation of
an open-access publishing house, a "Free Press," to be launched at
Röda Sten contemporary art center in Göteborg, Sweden. A project of
artist Sal Randolph, Free Press will accept all kinds of writing from
the public; contributions in any language can be as short as a single
word or as long as an encyclopedia and can include manifestos,
statements, documentations, studies, stories, recipes, poems and
whatever you can imagine.

"Even in the age of the internet, book publishing is a walled garden
where editors and commercial interests filter out most of what is
written," says Randolph. "To publish is to 'make public,' and the
published materials of the world create their own kind of public
space, a city of books where readers and writers are citizens. Free
Press aims to open up access to that public space. Like any city,
Free Press is bound to include both ugliness and beauty, though the
definitions of each will certainly differ."

All participating manuscripts will be published as printed books in
the Free Press series, available in the project's library and reading
room at Röda Sten, where events and discussions will also take place.
Additional copies will be placed on shelves in local bookstores and
libraries. Readers will be able to download copies from the website
and order them at cost from an internet book printer.

Free Press builds on several earlier projects by the artist -- in
particular, Free Words, where 3000 copies of a free book were
infiltrated onto the shelves of bookstores and libraries by a
worldwide network of volunteers, Opsound, a gift economy of music,
and Free Biennial/Free Manifesta, in which the form of an art
biennale was appropriated and ...
