During the early stages of the Lebanese uprising in 2019, Farah Fayyad and Siwar Kraytem installed a mobile screen-printing station at the heart of the protests, where they printed Arabic slogans and illustrations on the clothes of protestors. This film is a documentary about this action, and a reflection on the role of design in precarious circumstances.
Farah Fayyad (b. 1990) is a graphic designer and printmaker from Beirut, Lebanon. One of Fayyad’s central interests is Arabic lettering/typography and bilingual publication and exhibition design. Her practice also involves a lot of play with screen-printing, in terms of both print production and staging public live screen-printing interventions/performances. Farah is currently based between Beirut and Amsterdam.
