Lebanese filmmaker and photographer and Media Studies alum Akram Zaatari presents his video Her + Him (2001–12), which was recently acquired by the Guggenheim Museum, and discusses his practice. A founding member of the Arab Image Foundation in Beirut, Zaatari assumes the roles of researcher, collector, archivist, and curator in his work, investigating the sites, documents, and memories of the Middle East’s history through the filter of subjective experience. Funding for this event is provided by members of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum’s Middle Eastern Circle.
