Filmed in Tripoli, Lebanon, Concrete Forms of Resistance by artist Nick Jordan is a documentary centred upon the city’s abandoned ‘Permanent International Fair’, designed by Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer in the mid-1960s. The film presents themes of progress and crisis, labour and capital, material and memory, contrasting the utopian vision of the original plans with the stark realities of sectarian divisions, regional conflicts and rising economic inequalities. The film will be presented at The Holden Gallery with a live soundtrack score by Sam McLoughlin and David Chatton Barker
