European project - Moving Stories - Contour Mechelen04/01/2011
March 16 - October 10, 2011
'Moving Stories' is an international co-operation project supported by the European Union. Six partner organisations from Belgium, Italy, Austria, Germany, France and Poland are producing and exhibiting six new works of art in 2009-2011.
'Moving Stories' is a project that crosses borders and opens up new horizons, an inquiry into narrative modes in media art. The six European partner organisations function as a laboratory for innovation in exhibition and presentation.
Six artists were asked to explore new or innovative strategies involving moving images, each in a highly personal artistic way: along the lines of fiction or documentary, fact or suggestion, linear or interactive approach. Each partner co-produced the work of one artist. The end results are six fully developed works of art, all of them variations on the same theme, i.e. innovation of narration.
'Moving Stories' is a travelling exhibition. The six new works are presented by the six partners in their countries throughout 2011. The results of 'Moving Stories' will also be compiled in a publication.
