What Stories Want — from an exhibition, a public programme and a publication?
AAIR & Kunsthal Extra City

This exhibition, public programme and publication addresses the question: what do stories want? Artists Che Go Eun, Tom Hallet, Julia Dahee Hong, Béla Juttner and Joud Toamah conclude their one-year development residency at AAIR by proposing new stories or putting the power dynamics of narration into question. Each artist decrypts the codes of different arenas: Joud Toamah speculates on photography, Béla Juttner makes performances with garments and fashion, Tom Hallet unearths queer countercultures, Che Go Eun digs into manga and cyberculture, and Julia Dahee Hong departs from writing itself.

'What Stories Want' is presented at the former Dominican monastery site, that now hosts AAIR and Kunsthal Extra City. Entrance via Ploegstraat 23, 2018 Antwerp.

Open from Friday to Sunday. Every Sunday, the artists animate and share their reflection by means of a public event, either online or in real life.
