Ahmad Ghossein (born 1981) has a very speci c way of questioning reality. In his video The Fourth Stage, he focuses on the strange disappearance, in the region of Lebanon he comes from, of a magician. This event occurs simultaneously with the appearance of abstract monumental sculptures in the public realm. By doing so, he is suggesting that the disappearance of magic in the public realm and the propagation of narrations based on ideological principles and visual mythologies are very closely related. He focuses especially on authority structures and their societal effects.
