Confessions in times of Corona : Antoine Haddad


Antoine Haddad, founder of Artlab gallery


Do you think this situation will lead to a change? And if so, how?

The actual worldwide economic and sanitary condition will have to lead to a new social pact, most leaderships have proved incapable of sustaining a decent lifestyle for their citizens. Lebanon is no secluded island, we are part of this big village in addition to having a lesser performing system so will be affected even harder. I am afraid that change will only come after a major chaos of the size of the big crash of 1929, but hopefully a new “New World Order” geared towards a more socially equitable and environmentally aware system will emerge as a result. As an art community member I look forward to a rise in more engaged art as artists are at the forefront of sensitivity and social equity


What is your daily routine in confinement?

I have taken up airplane kit building, a long-time hobby of mine, plus cane making. It helps me get my mind off this imprisonment by focusing my attention to the details of what is on hand.
