The Outpost Archive
Ibrahim Nehme in conversation with Hayat Erdoğan
“the outpost is a reminder of the power of the imagination to shift perspectives.”
— the guardian
“The Outpost” is a magazine of possibilities from Beirut, Lebanon, with the intention to produce and disseminate a new narrative on and from the Arab region. As clearly captured in its subtitle — a magazine of possibilities — the publication’s narrative is forward-looking and hopeful, and aims to counter the discourse of fear and despair that is so prevalent in the Arab media landscape.
“The Outpost” became a space for new voices from across the region to come together and tell a different story about who they are and who they could be. “The Outpost” became a space of imagining new ways of being and living together, new ways of reading and relating to history, and new futures for the Arab region and its youth.
On January 21, 2021, the magazine released its entire printed archive online. The archive — published between the years 2012 and 2016, when the Arab world went through phenomenal shifts in politics and culture — is a record of this turning point in time.
“the outpost archive” is a conversation between editor-in-chief ibrahim nehme and hayat erdoğan, co-director of neumarkt theater. it took place on january 29, 2021.
