Purpose of the residency

Engaging critically with issues of the banal, the obvious and the stereotypical is a space I would like to investigate. I am currently looking into an obscure Japanese action animation series that was very popular in Lebanon in the late 80s to the early 90s, investigating issues of masculinity, heroism and the game of love war and sacrifice.
