Allow me to gaze, Sir.

Video – Work in Progress

Allow me to gaze Sir, is a video shot during a 24 hour layover in Istanbul, Turkey. It suggests a reversing gaze on the colonizer using binoculars, a colonial tool.

It is an attempt to question the content of the Lebanese Baccalaureate curriculum and the politics behind it, which still include lessons on the colonization by the Ottomans.
