FABRICATED HISTORIES. FACT AND FICTION IN RECENT HISTORY
IEEB7 will focus on our recent history with local as well as global reference constructing a counter-space for understanding/questioning/revealing/identifying/imagining the way history has been or it is being written. Approaching the relationship between fiction and historiography Linda Hutcheon observes the issue of source authority, the unstable notions of construction, reception, distribution: fiction and historiography are simultaneously used and abused, installed and turned upside down, affirmed and denied.
Written and oral history, historical files, archives can be created or interpreted and manipulated. From schoolbooks, television broadcast and tabloids, from academic publications to satires and wikileaks, from secret services files to archives, and last but not least from art criticism to history and theory of art, this project aims to question mechanisms of writing and fabricating histories and their impact on personal and collective memory.
IEEB7 will create a platform for contemporary art production through the use of print techniques and concepts with the purpose of reflecting on the factual/truth (writing/telling) and fictional dimensions of our recent histories.
