The Atlas Group is a project and foundation established in Beirut in 1977 to research and document the contemporary history of Lebanon. The Atlas Group locates, acquires, preserves, displays, produces and studies audio, visual, literary and other documents that shed light on this history. This catalogue is an ongoing investigation about the use of car bombs in the 1975-1991 Lebanese wars. With this project, The Atlas Group examines the multiple dimensions of the wars and examines the public and private events, discourses, objects and experiences surrounding the 3641 car bombs that were detonated during this period.
