The Pixelated Revolution
A Non-Academic Lecture by Rabih Mroué
Kalamon Magazine cordially invites you to The Pixelated Revolution at Metropolis Cinema on Saturday 14 April 2012 at 20:30.
Are Syrian protestors really “recording their own deaths”? Rabih Mroué begins by asking this question.
This presentation details the mechanisms of documentation via mobile phones. Through footage of the ongoing Syrian Revolution circulating on Facebook and other virtual networks, Mroué further delves into the numerous issues surrounding the Syrian protestors’ means of recording images “here and now”, on the relationship of this act of photographic documentation with death, and how we perceive these images “now” albeit from “over there”.
