The period between the late 1950s and 1970s falls between the Lebanon Crisis in 1958 and the outbreak of the Lebanese Civil War in 1975. «Beirut and the Golden Sixties: A Manifesto of Fragility» at the Gropius Bau traces the complicated tension between artistic cosmopolitanism and Beirut's omnipresent transregional and political contradictions.
