The Truth Will Be Known When The Last Witness Is Dead, Documents from the Fakhouri File in the Atlas Group Archive (Atlas Group, Walid Raad)
Born in 1967 in Lebanon, Walid Raad is an artist. His work includes writings, photography projects, videos, performances... all organised around a reflection on the possible representations of a country at war. Using the example of Lebanon as a way to represent, remember and make sense of war, Walid Raad questions the nature of collective and individual memories and their role in forming accepted historical fact. Walid Raad is a founding member of the Arab Image Foundation (Beirut / New York, www.fai.org.lb) and of the Atlas Group (Beirut / New York, www.theatlasgroup.org).
