Inflation 1 by Ahmad Ghaddar
Since the beginning of the Lebanese revolution (2019), a huge economic crisis has hit the country. Only a year later, the exchange rate of the US dollar enormously increased, to more than ten times its original value. In a series entitled “Inflation”, Ahmad manifests this crisis through exaggeration, destruction and reconstruction of the Lebanese banknote by transforming it into a contemporary art piece.
