Walid Raad says his work “was in some ways made possible by the wars in Lebanon”. He playfully considers the effects of conflict not only on body and mind, but also on art itself. Miraculous Beginnings is the first survey of his work from the past twenty years.

The exhibition is made up of a series of monochrome blue photographs—the negatives for which were found under the rubble of war-ravaged Beirut.
