Art That Forms New Narratives | Alexandra Bell | Storytellers Summit 2019

As part of the 2019 National Geographic Storytellers Summit, interdisciplinary artist Alexandra Bell considers the ways media frameworks construct memory and inform discursive practices around race, politics, and culture. With this presentation, Bell focuses on ‘counternarratives’--demonstrating how marginal populations can deconstruct the misleading stories presented by news media.

There’s a way that sometimes news publications publish the facts but in ways that don’t feel true. So, is there a process that I can create for myself as a reader that kind of teases that out? And that’s the way Counternarratives was born.
