Benefit Auction for a member of the staff of the Saint Georges Hospital in Beirut, Lebanon


On August 4, 2020, Beirut was subject to a devastating explosion which destroyed a large part of the city and beyond.

In the context of the exhibition by Stéphanie Saadé (1983, Lebanon), Sleeping Under the Shadow of an Unknown Tree, the artist and AKINCI felt the urgency to reflect on this tragic event, which still greatly affects the city and its inhabitants. Together with Stéphanie Saadé we held a special Benefit Auction of which all proceeds went to a heroic member of the medical team of the Saint Georges Hospital of Beirut, as an act of gratitude.
