In November of 2017, people from across Beirut came to the National Museum and gave their voices to a number of objects in the collection. The people spoke to and for and about these objects from the past, and, in doing so, they revealed fragments of the present. They did not attempt to disclose a particular historical narrative. Nor did they attempt to create a fiction. They did not lie and they did not try to tell the truth.

 

بشهر تشرين الثاني سنة الـ 2017، زار المتحف الوطني عدد كبير من سكان بيروت وحكوا عن التماثيل والقطع الأثريّة الموجودة داخل المتحف. العالم تحدّثوا مع التماثيل وبصوت المجسّمات، وحكوا عن آثار الماضي، وبهالطّريقة، كشفوا عن إشيا من الحاضر. ما حاولوا يكشفوا عن قصّة تاريخيّة حقيقيّة ولا.جرّبوا يخترعوا رواية من نسج الخيال. ما كذّبوا، بس كمان، ما جرّبوا يقولوا الحقيقة.
