Born in Saida, Lebanon in 1966, Akram Zaatari is an artist who lives and works in Beirut. Author of more than 40 videos, Zaatari has been exploring issues pertinent to postwar Lebanon. Collector of testimonies on Lebanon's social constrains, sexual practice, and photographic history, he focused on the mediation of territorial conflicts and wars, the logic of religious and national resistance, and the production and circulation of images in the context of geographically divided Middle East. Co-founder of the Arab Image Foundation (Beirut), Zaatari based his work on collecting, studying, and archiving the photographic history of the Middle East, notably studying the work of Lebanese photographer Hashem el Madani as a register of social relationships and of photographic practices. His videos include: "In This House" (2005), "This Day" (2003), "All is well on the Border" (1997), "Crazy of you" (1997), and in "How I love you" (2001).
