Narrative Machines : Episode 3

Performance - 15 min

Developed from research into the origins of intriguing anecdotes that appeared in the media and that hint towards the ambiguity of fact in our post-truth reality, Skali presents speculative narratives that reveal and complicate relations between contemporary mythology and the formation of power. For Narrative Machines: Episode 3, she departs from the declaration in 2014 of a Egyptian army general claiming to have invented a miraculous machine that would cure AIDS.
