Chancellor Dunning Trust Lecture – Akram Zaatari

Acclaimed Lebanese artist Akram Zaatari guides us through various samples of his work, borrowing the letter format to engage in writing a complex disputed history. In one of the works presented here, Zaatari conducts both an investigation and a stirring tribute to an act of resistance that marked his childhood memories: the refusal of an Israeli pilot to bomb a boys’ high school in south Lebanon in 1982.
