The Inhabitants of Images is the title of a novel by Mohamad Abi Samra, published by Dar An-Nahar in 2003. It has now moved into the title of a work by Rabih Mroué, without the permission of the author.

The Inhabitants of Images is a video-lecture, co-production between Tanzquartier-Wien, Bidoun magazine, and Ashkal Alwan / Beirut.

Rabih Mroué (Beirut, 1967) is an actor, dramaturge, artist and a contributing editor of the Lebanese publication Kalamon and The Drama Review. He is also the co-founder of the Beirut Art Centre (BAC). His work questions the processes of construction and representation of memory and historical and political narrative, from a varied and complex artistic practice located on the border between the theatrical and visual culture.
