Iraq: Writers Protest Against Club Closure and Alcohol Ban

Freitag 10. Dezember 2010 von htm

Dozens of Iraqi writers and poets took to the streets of Baghdad Friday to protest at the closure of social clubs that serve alcohol in the capital, arguing that it harkened back to Saddam-era repression.
Holding up placards with the phrases “Freedom first” and “Baghdad will not be Kandahar,” they staged a demonstration near the Iraqi Writers’ Union (IWU) building in al-Wattanabi in the city centre. (Source: Google Alcohol News, 12/09/10) teaandpolitics.wordpress.com, 12/08/2010

Alcohol And Drugs ‚Stifle Artistic Creativity‘

Samstag 26. Juni 2010 von htm

The idea that alcohol and drugs can stimulate artists, writers and musicians to create great works of art is a „dangerous myth“ and can actually stifle creativity, a psychiatrist has said.
Dr Iain Smith, a consultant in addiction psychiatry at Gartnavel Royal Hospital in Glasgow, was speaking at the International Congress of the Royal College of Psychiatrists in Edinburgh.
He said that while many artists and writers, such as the 19th century French poet Baudelaire and American writer Ernest Hemingway, were well known for their use of intoxicating substances (cannabis and alcohol respectively), most produced their greatest works when they were sober.
