How Great You Are O Son of the Desert!, Part I

(2013)

Mar 1, 2018–Mar 31, 2018

Lebanese artist Haig Aivazian uses the infamous “headbutt heard around the world”—when French soccer star Zinedine Zidane struck Italian defender Marco Materazzi during the 2006 World Cup final—as the starting point for this exploration of systemic social transgression, class warfare, and violence across histories both intimate and regional. (26 mins., video) The video is presented in conjunction with our March 22 programs Expanding the Field: Sports and Culture and The Nation’s Finest.
