beirut: beirutkon

the beirutkon exhibition, currently on at beirut art center, gives an interesting insight in the work of lebanese creatives anastasia nysten, carlo massoud, joelle achkar and marc dibeh. created during a workshop in 2009, the concept developed into an effort to offer an alternative to traditional souvenirs with a distinctive perspective on the city of beirut. interestingly, all
 products have a very personal touch as they're inspired by the creator's way of living and are crafted in their respective neighbourhoods [on through aug 27]. location: building 13, rue 97 [jisr al wati]. © nadim asfar / marc dibeh's set of personalized souvenirs
