معرض صور قيد الإنشـاء
2008 - 2010 @ Beirut - Tripoli - Saida - Marjayoun - Deir Al Qamar - Baalbeck - Byblos


On April 10, 2008, under the What Is to Be Done? Lebanon’s War-Loaded Memory initiative, UMAM Documentation & Research launched the "Missing" exhibition to viscerally focus on an aspect of Lebanon’s civil war that is sometimes overlooked and forgotten—the diaspora of disappeared. It has been said that the disappeared are "neither dead or alive." Through the display of photographs of the hundreds of missing individuals, drawn from the gamut of war-era confessions, origins, and political persuasions, the exhibition added a degree of palpability to the painful ambiguity that surrounds the vanished.

After its initial unveiling at the UNESCO Palace in Beirut, the exhibition moved on to Tripoli (December 2008), Saida (February 2009), Marjayoun (July 2009), Deir Al Qamar and Baalbeck (December 2009), and Byblos (June 2010), growing along the way as families approached UMAM D&R to pass along pictures and share the stories of their loved ones who disappeared during the war.
