Mroué’s work engages with issues of individual responsibility, the intertwining of personal histories with wider narratives, and representations of power with particular attention towards Lebanon and the Middle East.

On Thursday, 17 June 2010 from 17.00–20.00 hrs, BAK presents, in collaboration with the conference Waiting for the Political Moment, a lecture by philosopher Simon Critchley, followed by a performance by Rabih Mroué titled The Inhabitants of Images.

Fragments of Repair: Repair & Listen

Throughout the duration of the project Fragments of Repair, Kader Attia engages in creating a new eponymous work in the form of a gradually unfolding podcast and sound installation in twelve parts, titled Repair & Listen. Drawing on transcultural epistemologies and lived experiences, the podcast investigates “repair” as a concrete practice to counter the psychological impact of living through a pandemic. The episodes of the podcast will become available on this page, throughout the duration of Fragments of Repair.
