DVD release

Last night at the Pompidou Center there was reception for the release of a Dvd compilation of films by the artist Mounir Fatmi. Ttitled "Tete Dur" or "Hard Head," the DVD includes a selection of eight videos produced and created between 1999 and 2008. Political, provocative, spiritual and poetic, these complex works bring to light the artist's ambiguities, doubts, fears and desires relating to our world's current events. Using playful language inspired by islamic art, the Koran and European authors such as Artaud and Montesquieu, his videos toy with contextual relationships by blurring the notions of a here and there. Check it out at the Librarie Flammarion at the Centre Pompidou.
