“Thinking with audience” – Dissecting what is to be remembered and forgotten: Interview with Rabih Mroué
While the conversation with Philip Auslander – printed in this issue – mainly revolved around the theoretical and medial conditions of the relationship between performance and document with regard to performance documentation, this interview with the Lebanese artist Rabih Mroué sheds light on his artistic approach to documents and archives, related to historical and current political events in the Middle East. Departing from one of his latest pieces The Pixelated Revolution (2012), the question is raised of how theatre and performance have the potential to engender a reflection on the mediation and mediality of memory and on how we engage with images of war and death, their use and misuse for political and ideological purposes and create possible counter-narratives.
