Rabih Mroué on “the war against the image”

Lebanese artist Rabih Mroué discusses his video work The Pixelated Revolution (2012), which explores how death is presented in images of the Syrian Civil War. He reflects on the phenomenon of activists and civilians using cell phones as recording devices that, in many cases, capture the final moments of eye contact between assassin and victim.
