#061 MYTH

This programme has been developed in relation to the themes of Impakt Festival 2017: Haunted Machines & Wicked Problems.

Curated by Hristiana Stamou, Suzanne Verras and Xiang Yu Yeung.
Stamou, Verras and Yeung are students at Leiden University and they curated this program as part of their internship at Impakt.

We create and tell stories to get a better understanding of the world around us. This is why the world is full of myths ranging from success stories to stories about heroes and villains in culture, history and technology. We took this sub-theme as a departure point to curate a selection of video works exploring dominant narratives and preconceptions that shape our relationship with the world and technology.
