Whilst Rabab Ghazoul’s work manifests across a variety of media to include video, installation and site-based work, the use of text forms a common thread through her practice.

“Moreover, although in principle production produces means of life, capitalist production produces not principally means of life but further means of production: production serves the avoidance of death rather than life itself; nothing can die, everything must be capitalized and expanded.”

“One’s body leaves home for the mountain of death”
