[Nettime-nl] Re: Soundtransit.nl presents sounds from Lebanon [signed]


Hi Jo and Jaromil,

Thanks guys! I'm sure Mazen appreciates it as well.

Sara and I just this morning were sitting in our nice, comfortable flat in Berlin--a bit hot yes but certainly with a solid roof over our heads--reading about bodybags full of children, blood and maggots getting a temporary mass burial in south Lebanon. And we were wondering the same thing...what _can_ we do? I guess the answer is we do what we can.

keep fighting the good fight,
d.

"People hide behind references and theories, they are also increasingly inclined, in our ever expanding open social order, to hide behind forwarding information; not taking a position one way or the other, just forwarding. In a world that favors forwarding information over personal positions, critical engagement will continue to wane and ultimately vanish, not just on listservs and blogs, but everywhere. These are the contradictions and ambiguities of living in a social order in which life is controlled through its very openness." (Kenneth Wirbin)

I mean

You know that Beiroeth is burning
I know that most of us are busy

Yet, I wonder who of us is busy with Beirouth?

streamtime.org is posting on its metablog
that's all we can do

we are invited to join ISEA remotely
but what use is that, without direct particpation
from Lebanon and Israel?

just wondering...

Mazen Kerbaj was born in 1975 in Beirut and lived there since. His main
activities are comics, painting and music. After a lot of works for
different publishers and magazines, it is in March 2000 that he releases
some of his more personal works in his Journal 1999 (a dairy in comics
format). He self-published eight other books and many short stories since.


Mazen's blog currently contains writings, drawings and sounds created
under the threat of Israeli bombs in Lebanon:

Please share this material with anyone who might be interested in a
first-person account of what is happening right now in the Middle East.
