Dar El-Nimer for Arts and Culture, in association with Magnum Photos, presents Josef Koudelka: The Wall/Beirut, an exhibition displaying two of the Czech photographer’s extensive photo series.

The Wall comprises of a landscape of panoramic reproductions of the Wall, which Koudelka photographed during his several trips to Palestine
 between 2008 and 2012, while Beirut documents the war-devastated city centre at the end of the Lebanese Civil War in 1991.

The exhibition is composed of nineteen photographic works, alongside Koudelka’s publications. In addition to this, a projection will run.

The exhibition is curated by Xavier Barral.
