"Mixed Feelings" is a social-visual project that uses a combination of images and words to highlight the issue of racism in contemporary Lebanon. It aims at unpacking and examining ‘race’, racialization, racism, ‘othering’, and different modes of exclusion and inclusion in Lebanon; and creating dialogue and debate around these issues / subjects.

The "Mixed Feelings" project is in cooperation with Heinrich Böll Stiftung Middle East.
