    In this week's Artsworld Yamen Soukkarieh gives an insiders guide to the cultural scene in Beirut.

    We meet Zena El Khalil an artist who, with her playful juxtaposition of images of popstars, politicians, saints and resistance fighters, is striving to reflect the unique and complex fabric of Lebanese society.

    Plus we examine how artist Anupong Chanthorns depictions of monks behaving badly has polarised opinion in Thai society.
