Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige. Two Suns in a sunset

Inspired by found documents, personal archives, and poetic experiences, Lebanese artists and filmmakers Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige invent a unique way to navigate between art and film. Their documentaries, fictional films, photography, art installations, texts, and performances develop narratives and images around stories kept secret, acting as a resistance to official history.

Functioning as a guide for the eponymous exhibitions as well as a monograph of their work, Two Suns in a Sunset, written in the three languages of the artists —Arabic, French, and English— includes contributions by Hoor Al Qasimi, Philippe Azoury, Omar Berrada, José Miguel G. Cortés, Okwui Enwezor, Marta Gili, Boris Groys, Nat Muller, Anna Schneider, and Brian Kuan Wood.
