Rabih Mroué: The Pixelated Revolution


A non-academic lecture about the usage of mobile phones during the Syrian revolution.

This lecture aims to study the advices and directions regarding the taking of photographs during the events of the Syrian revolution, as these advices were shared via the medium of Facebook and other virtual communication tools.

In which manner can we envisage the photographic traces broadcast by the Syrians in the vast universe of the Internet?

Are the broken-up and incomplete images sent by the Syrians an extension of their physical experience?

In his lecture, Mroué’s aim is to investigate and read into these matters, and present his personal interpretation of this phenomenon.

Rabih Mroué, an actor, director, playwright, visual artist and a co-founder of the Beirut Art Center, will come to Prague at the invitation of tranzitdisplay.

In the past, he introduced himself to the Czech audience by his first solo show (Rabih Mroué, I, the Undersigned, BAK 2011 / Will the spring visit us?, TD 2011).

His performative lecture The Pixalated Revolution is currently going also at Documenta 13.
