Joe Namy

Joe Namy works between London, UK and Beirut, Lebanon

Joe Namy is an artist, educator, and composer. He often works collaboratively, creating artworks that integrate music, video, performance, photography, installation, and radio. His practice centers primarily on identity, memory, power, and technology in music and organized sound, such as the politics and gender dynamics of bass, the color and tones of militarization, the migration patterns of instruments and songs, the complexities of translation from language to language, from drum to dance, from score to sound. He teaches at the Ashkal Alwan Home Workspace in Beirut and has been programming radio since 2009 as Electric Kahr.
