Beirut Art Scene

Kunstszene Beirut

Beirut, which is often described as the «Paris of the Middle East», has been marked by decades of civil war and other armed combat. From an architectural as well as from a social, economic and historical perspective, the city has become a battlefield of divergent interests that often end in conflict. Today 17 different religions still call the urban area home, which, depending on the political position, can be a blessing or a curse. Rivalries between clans and denominations, feudal thinking, hierarchies and allegiances to family clans determine the socio-economic and political stratification and social interactions in the country. This is also true for the players on the cultural scene, who, however, also find a source of inspiration in this complexity.
