How To Tell A Story addresses storytelling as discipline that moved from marketing strategies to political discourses to enter the whole news/media system.
Observing the almost-scientific set of rules and schemes it responds to, storytelling is used as a point of departure to stage mechanisms, hierarchies and power relations that regulate the production and distribution of information.
The exhibition presents works and practices by international artists which, through different media, deconstruct storytelling and interfere with the narrative structure of both dominant and peripheral stories, so as to rephrase history.
By looking at the way that media operate, the artists tackle their role in shaping the collective imaginary. At the same time, the potential offered by these media is put at use to explore participative methodologies and let emerge collective and shared narratives.
How To Tell A Story is part of the project SHAREs
SHAREs is a project organized by European Alternatives
