Inspired by found objects, personal archives and poetic experiences, Lebanese artists and filmmakers Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige invent a unique way of navigating between art and film. Their documentaries, fictional films, photography, art installations, texts and performances develop narratives around stories kept secret, acting as a resistance to official history. Functioning as a guide for an exhibition traveling between Sharjah, Paris, Munich and Valencia as well as a monograph, Two Suns in a Sunset, written in the three languages of the artists—English, French and Arabic—surveys a three-decade-long collaboration, which includes the 21 works and 6 full-length films.

The Lebanese video artists, documentarians and photographers Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige have been a duo since the 1990s, making works that address the turbulent history of their homeland. This monograph surveys the duo’s projects, including their most recent series of installations and research on the now defunct Lebanese space exploration program.
