">Name: Rabih Mroue's performance piece banned
Artist: Rabih Mroue
Confronting Bodies: Lebanon's Interior Ministry
Date of Action: August 2007
Specific Location: Lebanon
Description of Artwork: "How Nancy Wished That Everything Was an April Fool's Joke" involves four fighters of different militias in Lebanon's 15-year civil war reminiscing about their experiences episodically. The characters all contradict one another in their stories and in their actions, pledging loyalty to a political leader and then betraying him.
Mroue believes the reason for the ban stems from the fact that although there is no fighting, Lebanon is on the brink of another civil war.
