With a series of “non-academic lectures,” Rabih Mroué invites Lebanese artists and writers to reflect upon today’s ongoing eruptions of violence in the region in light of a heavy historical legacy. By using this term, the program highlights its origin from an academic context, yet deploys the format as a strategy of artistic research to question the very authority of institutional restrictions and to investigate the fabrication of truth.
