To tell your own story (Comment se
raconter) brings together stories from behind the scenes of grand history, from society’s margins. The featured artists come from different horizons ; they share stories through videos, sculptures, letters, and images. In our post-truth age, we are witnessing a fragmentation of collective narratives. Contested by emancipatory movements, the age-old channels for disseminating shared narratives – such as education and mass media – are losing their aura and authority. This transformation has allowed a much broader expression of feelings and emotions in the public arena ; while a rallying point for some, it also remains a space of exclusion for those who not feel empowered to express themselves on its stage.
