"Memory for Forgetfulnes" :
Registering/Effacing the Memory of the Lebanese War

"In this age of memorials, it is customary to think of architecture as a means of commemoration. Indeed, as a synthetic physical act, architecture has long been a common and prevalent means of giving a commemorative presence to memory. However, by giving physicality to memory, architecture offers simultaneously its means of annihilation, thus becoming an ideal means of achieving its antithesis, oblivion. And just like memory, a finite selective process, architecture inescapably embodies an act of exclusion as well. As such architecture emerges as an ideal vehicle for oblivion as much as it is for memory."

Mahmoud Darwish's Memory for Forgetfulness: August, Beirut, 1982 can be read as a story of language discovering itself in the midst of the Israeli siege of Beirut in 1982. This involves an exploration of language as a transgressive experience of writing and reading, whereby language is creatively and critically experienced as a dense texture of conflictual impulses and developing residues.
