Rabih Mroué (born 1967) is an actor, director, playwright, visual artist, and a contributing editor of The Drama Review (TDR) as well as a co-founder and board member of the Beirut Art Center (BAC), Beirut. Recent exhibitions include "I the Undersigned" at BAK (Utrecht, 2010), Performa 09 (New York, 2009), 11th International Istanbul Biennial (2009), "Tarjama/Translation" at Queens Museum of Art (New York, 2009), Sjarjah Biennial (2009), "Soft Manipulation – Who is afraid of the new now?" at Casino Luxembourg (2008) and "Medium Religion" at ZKM (Karlsruhe, 2008). Mroué lives and works in Beirut.

Rabih Mroué engages with cultural and political processes.
His meticulously staged theatrical performances
and videos explore relationships between different artistic
languages and the interaction between performer and
audience. For “Globe” Mroué invited his friends from Beirut.
Alternative Sounds characterize Ziad Nawfal’s live
broadcast for Radio Lebanon and a concert by Scrambled
Eggs, one of the most distinguished young Beirut rock
bands. Films by Simon Haber, Maher Abi Samra, Lamia
Joreige, and Diana Allan will be shown, and a performance
by the filmmakers Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige
will be staged. The program moreover includes lectures
by Rabih Mroué and a talk by the artist, architect, and
essayist Tony Chakar.

Globe is not an exhibition in the traditional sense, but rather a flexible space that allows for a series of scenarios focused on moving images, performative events and talks that unfold during seven weeks in a temporary space at the ground floor of the Deutsche Bank Towers. Each week will be shaped by a different international artist and his or her guests.

Die Veranstaltungen finden in englischer Sprache statt.
