CA2M holds Rabih Mroué´s first solo exhibition in Spain. Mroué (b. 1967, Lebanon) developed his career as director, playwright, performer, musician and visual artist, his work always reflects on the use of images in (and against) official narratives: from the Lebanese geopolitical reality to the massive production of videos of the Syrian revolution.
Throughout specific experiences marking his biography (specifically Lebanon’s war and post-war, alongside the Israeli occupation) the works carried out by Mroué with his personal file raise questions that, among our own life experiences together with news from the media, concerns all of us; issues that have to do with truth, fiction, memory, forgetfulness, disappearance, and mechanisms that rule representation tricks or that, as it is now happening, establish new and powerful relationships between those images and ourselves.
