Lebanese Photographer Noel Nasr at Stanford University

Noel Nasr (Lecturer, Notre Dame University – Louaize, Lebanon) delivered a talk at Stanford on Feb 1, 2013 which he titled "Freedom Before Expression": The Political Limits on Creative Practice in Lebanon.

In this roundtable discussion, Noel Nasr, Lebanese photographer and lecturer at Notre Dame University-Louaize, Lebanon, reflected on the different ways in which freedom of expression through art is limited in Lebanon, with a focus on the structural as well as informal ways in which freedom of "creation"--creative practice itself--is constrained by politics. Drawing on his own experiences in working on diverse artistic projects in Lebanon--illustrated by a vivid slide show of photographic work--Nasr showed how censorship is only one of a myriad ways through which politics subjugates freedom of expression in Lebanon.
