For many years, the work of Lebanese artist Rabin Mroué has focused on images of violence, the mechanisms of martyrdom and political propaganda. He collects materials, dissects and re-writes them, creating installations, works for the theatre stage, as well as texts which deal with the amalgamation of images and stories.
During the summer of last year, he began researching the recruitment videos of Islamic extremists in Hesse, collecting material and talking with the intelligence services. This material forms the basis of his new work "Sand in the Eyes".
