Produced on the occasion of Bik van der Pol’s workshop You Talking To Me? At 98 Weeks, Beirut, 12–18 October, 2012. In this workshop, participants travelled by taxis, talked with drivers, recorded their conversations, and returned with stories which were disseminated by public radio during hours negotiated with a radio station. The taxi was regarded as social place, as carrier and interface of public voice, knowledge/history, often across generations. By choosing the taxi, the project also subtly touched upon two major urban management issues in Beirut: lack of public space (spaces of collectivity) and transportation.
