Starting from his artistic practice, Lebanese architect Raafat Majzoub shares his findings on the Heyvaert neighborhood in Anderlecht.
Raafat Majzoub is an architect, author and artist based in Lebanon. His work negotiates the territory of reality through literature, visual arts and public interventions, inventing and advocating accessible alternatives and possible scenarios. During a residency at Moussem Nomadic Arts Centre Majzoub reflects from his specific artistic practice on the Heyvaert neighborhood in Anderlecht, the local economy, the industry of second hand cars, public space and gentrification. In this lecture he shares his findings and gives an insight into his project ‘street school,’ an inquisitive performance on mutual learning in public.
