Talks & Tours with Rabih Mroué
Talks & Tours 17.01.17, 6:30 pm
A tour of the exhibition "Joana Hadjithomas & Khalil Joreige: Two Suns in a Sunset" with Haus der Kunst curator Anna Schneider and actor and director Rabih Mroué. In place of a conventional tour, Talks & Tours offers exhibition visitors the opportunity to discuss aspects of the artists' work in a conversation with Anna Schneider and Rabih Mroué.
Rabih Mroué (lives and works in Beirut) is an actor, director, playwright, and visual artist. He is a contributing editor for "The Drama Review" (TDR), the quarterly "Kalamon" and cofounder and a board member of the Beirut Art Center (BAC), Beirut. His complex and diverse practice, spanning different disciplines and formats in between theater, performance, and visual arts, has established Mroué as a key figure amongst a new generation of artistic voices in Lebanon. Employing both fiction and in-depth social analysis as tools for engaging with his immediate reality, Mroué explores the responsibilities of the artist in communicating with an audience in given political and cultural contexts. His works deal with issues that have been swept under the rug in Lebanon's current political climate, connected to the enduring marks left by the Lebanese civil war as well as more recent political events like the Arab Spring and the Syrian civil war. His works have received several awards and were exhibited at dOCUMENTA (13), Kassel; ICP Triennial, New York; CA2M Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; and Centre Pompidou, Paris. He worked together with Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige on many films among them "Ashes/Ramad" and "Je veux voir" ("I Want To See", 2008).
