I, the Undersigned

From Friday, 21 May until Sunday, 1 August, BAK, basis voor actuele kunst presents I, the Undersigned, the first solo exhibition by Lebanese theater director, playwright, actor, and visual artist Rabih Mroué. The opening takes place on Thursday, 20 May 2010 at 20.00 hrs at BAK.

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.

Course: Art as Politics

An online course that was prompted by the urgency to engage in collective thinking through, learning about, and imagining critical, politically-informed artistic practices that grasp—and intervene into—the present. Taught by Maria Hlavajova, BAK’s general & artistic director.
