VPRO Medialab Meet Up
With the onset of social media and an ever evolving media landscape, the act of storytelling is continuously and dramatically changing. No longer confined to print, TV, radio or even the internet, stories can now be found everywhere: on your body, in the train or on your phone. With travelling dialogue ‘VPRO Medialab Meet Up’, VPRO Medialab are going up and down the country to find out what the future of storytelling holds. TodaysArt 2016 marks the first stop for the travelling dialogue. Moderated by the VPRO’s ‘Mind of the Universe’ host, Rob van Hattem, the first MediaLab Meet Up focuses on non-fictional stories and begs the question, how does one imagine and tell non-fictional formats differently? Joining van Hattem on stage are the team behind Entropy, the transdisciplinary epic that recounts the history of our universe and its stars, as well as fellow TodaysArtists Ali Eslami and Floris Kaayk. Following the talks, the audience will break off into small groups, each joined by one of the artists, to dissect and analyze how each artist’s medium influences the story being told.
