Lowave is an independent DVD label with the objective of discovering and promoting contemporary film and video art. Its ambition is to create a new marketplace for the work of cutting-edge artists and filmmakers, under recognized by the traditional distribution channels, by making them accessible to the public via the DVD format. With DVD, experimental film can finally find an audience beyond the film festival circuit.
The Hard Head DVD includes a selection of eight videos produced and created between 1999 and 2008 by Moroccan artist Mounir Fatmi. 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. Mounir Fatmi has been present on the international scene for more than ten years and is one of the most profilic figures of contemporary Arab art. His works have been shown at Migros Museum, Museum Kunst Palast, Centre Georges Pompidou, Tate Modern and the Mori Art Museum as well as various bienniales in Venice, Seville, South Korea, Sharjah and Dakar.
