The Atlas Group. Volume 1: The Truth Will Be Known When The Last Witness Is Dead

Founded in 1999 by artist Walid Raad, The Atlas Group is a fictional archive consisting of lectures, documentaries and installations about Lebanon's civil war. Through this archive, Raad has created an alternative world, one in which conflict is not portrayed as a succession of facts, but as an abstract composition of memories and media reports. Here, Raad documents the historical figure of Dr. Fadi Fakhouri—leading civil war historian—through notebooks, videos and photographs. [publisher’s note]
