Judith Naeff explores spatial experience and temporality in post-civil-war Beirut. She describes a number of cultural objects that engage with the city and express an experience of time she calls the ‘suspended now’. This experience is characterised by the sense of an unresolved and inaccessible past and a radically uncertain future. She analyses objects such as pictures of construction site pits, stories of underground journeys and martyr posters.
