TEU is a multi-headed operation based in and around the malleable and quasi-sentient entity that is the Middle East. Founded by a group of architects, writers, and artists in Beirut, what feels like a decade ago, TEU explores disjunctions, folds, and ruptures in the fabric of time through the creation of digital speculative accounts in each case using as a point of departure psychogeographical places which resist singular narratives and are characterized by collective amnesia, conflict or ecological collapse.

TEU was founded and could only have been founded in Beirut, a radically enclosed space where nothing enters or leaves, where documents, artifacts, and entities erupt into existence. TEU has managed to spread its tentacles forward and backward in time and across bodies of water and oil pipelines expanding across the region’s centers and peripheries, as well as its phantom limbs.
