Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige
Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige are filmmakers and artists. Their work questions the fabrication of images and representations, how imagination is constructed and the writing of history. Their interests include the traces of the invisible and the absent, histories that are kept secret – such as the disappearances during the Lebanese Civil War, a forgotten space project and Internet scams and their devastating consequences. Their films have received awards at the major international film festivals. Their artworks have been shown in museums and art centres around the world, most recently at the Jeu de Paume (Paris), Haus der Kunst (Munich), Sharjah Art Foundation (Sharjah), Solomon R Guggenheim (New York), MIT (Cambridge, US), Whitechapel (London), Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris and many biennales including Venice, Istanbul, Lyon, Sharjah, Kochi and Gwangju. In 2017, they were awarded the Marcel Duchamp Prize after exhibiting the project Unconformities at the Centre Pompidou (Paris).
