Rabih Mroué & Hito Steyerl [LB/DE] presented by Kaaitheater
Probable Title: Zero Probability
The complex relationship between reality and fiction lies at the core of Rabih Mroué and Hito Steyerl’s artistic practice. In this lecture performance, they examine probability. Steyerl gets caught up in quantum superposition, while Mroué consults his father about mathematical calculations. They come across ‘zero probability’: a space in which everything is possible but nothing can be explained. Any kind of logic ceases to exist or disappears in the ruthless shearing of a cinematographic edit.
• Rabih Mroué is an actor, director and writer and his visual work has been featured at dOCUMENTA (13), amongst others. Themes in his work include the civil wars in Lebanon and censorship in dictatorial regimes. Hito Steyerl is a film-maker and writer whose films can be seen in museums and galleries. She asks questions about the nature of the image and possible (ideological) misinterpretations of it.
