project description

Please hold the line is the current social sculpture in preparation, in which a long dinner table will be set up at four different locations in Lebanon. A white tablecloth is used to set the table and lunch is served to different ethnic and religious groups, some of whom are hostile. How does the food of the others taste like? Beirut, Bakaa, Tripoli and Tyros are home to strong contrasts and generate fields of tension, ranging from wealth to refugee camps. – Everyday racism causes people in one’s own country to gape further apart. The tablecloth travels to all places and serves as a canvas for the scenario. Under artistic instruction, the participants* paint their messages to the “others” and the tablecloth slowly transforms into a universal painting.

The project account is opened via Paypal and bank transfer.
