UMAM Documentation and Research (UMAM D&R)
Type of Organisation:
In 2007, UMAM Documentation and Research (UMAM D&R) launched an exhibition titled ‘Collecting Dahia’, which comprised of posters and testimonies about how Dahia, the southern suburbs of Beirut, have changed over the years. These photos and testimonies were collected through various platforms for people to express their perceptions and experiences of this change by means of photos and testimonies. The exhibition portrayed old photos and new photos from Dahia together, which were taken by pre-war and current inhabitants of the same places in an attempt to express the type of life and stories it embodied and to provoke discussions on memory between them.
