Curators Leo Kuelbs and Sandra Ratkovic present “Digital Fairy Tales: Album Two,” the second set of visual + sound pieces inspired by old German tales collected by Xavier von Schönwerth in the early 19th century. This presentation of weird and wonderful tales will bring ancient archetypal contexts and references into the 21st century. By creating this bridge through time, “Digital Fairy Tales” will reveal and enliven commonalities of the collective subconscious covering the 150-year period in question and beyond. Also, through the use of digital media, notions of storytelling are allowed to evolve, just as they have throughout history. “Digital Fairy Tales” is yet another new way to tell some of the oldest stories.
STREAM THE SHOW HERE ON FRIDAY MARCH 3!
