«The Atlas Group is a project established in 1999 to research and document the contemporary history of Lebanon. One of our aims with this project is to locate, preserve, study, and produce audio, visual, literary and other artifacts that shed light on the contemporary history of Lebanon. In this endeavor, we produced and found several documents including notebooks, films, videotapes, photographs and other objects. Moreover, we organized these works in an archive, The Atlas Group Archive. The project’s public forms include mixed-media installations, single channel screenings, visual and literary essays, and lectures/performances.
The Atlas Group is located in Beirut and New York. It includes dozens of documents including films, videotapes, photographs, notebooks and other objects. The Atlas Group documents are preserved in files that are organized in three types:
TYPE A for files that contain documents that we produced and that we attribute to named imaginary individuals or organizations
TYPE FD for files that contain documents that we produced and that we attribute to anonymous individuals or organizations
Type FD files include: Secrets file / Operator#17
TYPE AGP for files that contain documents that we produced and that we attribute to The Atlas Group
Type AGP files include: Sweet Talk file / Thin Neck File
