Published by Whitechapel Gallery.
Text by Alan Gilbert, Blake Stimson, Hélčne Chouteau-Matikian.

What is a photographic image? Can a photograph ever tell the truth? These are some of the questions artist Walid Raad (born 1967) has been investigating for the past 20 years, in a practice that encompasses photography, film and video, sculpture, installation and performance. This publication brings together three major bodies of work: the photographic and video works produced under the fictional collective name The Atlas Group; various series of seemingly "straight" photography of his native Beirut titled Sweet Talk: Commissions (Beirut); and his most recent project, Scratching on Things I Could Disavow: A History of Art in the Arab World. The publication includes an exchange between the artist and curator Achim Borchardt-Hume; an essay on conceptions of truth by poet and writer Alan Gilbert; a text on Raad's use of photography and its ties to Beirut by Blake Stimson; and an essay by Hélčne Chouteau-Matikian.

Walid Raad: The Atlas Group 1989-2004Walid Raad: The Atlas Group 1989-2004

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Text by Kassandra Nakas, Britta Schmitz.

Walid Raad founded the Atlas Group in 1989 to (ostensibly) document the contemporary history of Lebanon, particularly its civil war of 1975-1990. This archive brings together found and produced photographic, audio-visual and written records, including snapshots from the private albums of the (fictional) Lebanese historian Dr. Fadl Fakhouri and the videotapes of Souheil Bachar, who was (allegedly) a hostage in Beirut in 1985. Raad's works are characterized by an aura of the documentary, all the better to fracture their credibility; to question the authenticity of the written, pictorial and audiovisual document; and to ask how history--in particular history marked by the trauma and the contradictory narratives of civil war--can be represented. Raad was born in 1967 in Chbanieh, and lives in New York and Beirut. The Atlas Group includes 11 photographic and video works from the last 10 years and two new photo series.

Volume 1: The Fakhouri File

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Artwork by Walid Raad.

Founded in 1999 by artist Walid Raad, The Atlas Group is a fictional archive consisting of lectures, documentaries and installations about Lebanon's civil war. Through this archive, Raad has created an alternative world, one in which conflict is not portrayed as a succession of facts, but as an abstract composition of memories and media reports. Here, Raad documents the historical figure of Dr. Fadi Fakhouri--leading civil war historian--through notebooks, videos and photographs.
