About

I am a writer and associate professor in human sciences based in Beirut. My main interests include the relations between scientific discovery and contemporary art practices and the dynamic logical and predictable shift of art's locus in contemporary artworks, as well as the performative exploration of the 'illusion of decisive agency' that still motivates artistic practice and blurs the limits between explicit and non-explicit symbolic levels in contemporary artistic production. In 2009 I published 'Can One Man Save the (Art) World' (Beirut). In 2010 I curated M. Obaidi's latest show in Art Dubai 2010 and published 'Mr Obaidi and the Fair Skies® Corporation' (Beirut). On October 13, 2010, I was appointed curator of the Lebanese Pavilion at the 54th International Art Exhibition in Venice in 2011. I have a background in cognitive science and human sciences. One of his main concerns is the use of new media in the follow-up of the social and behavioral outcome of the artistic process. I defends the central thesis that 'art is an intervention in art'.
