Sand in the Eyes
Rabih Mroué, Sand in the Eyes
The Lebanese artist Rabih Mroué, whose practice combines theatre, performance and visual arts, will present for the first time in France his last non-academic reading, conceived as an exploration of the image politics of ISIS recruiting videos.
Based on research material comprised of recruiting videos secured by the officers of the German Intelligence Services, Mroué asks not only what these videos reveal about their producers or the videos’ capacity document killing, but also questions the politics inherent in dealing with these videos from the point of view of the state and society.
