‘Moving Stories’ is an international co-operation project supported by the European Union in the framework of the Culture Programme 2007-2013. Six partner organisations from Belgium, Italy, Austria, Germany, France and Poland are producing and exhibiting six new works of art.

‘Moving Stories’ is a project that crosses borders and opens up new horizons, an inquiry into narrative modes in media art. The six European partner organisations function as a laboratory for innovation in exhibition and presentation.

Six artists were asked to explore new or innovative strategies involving moving images, each in a highly personal artistic way: along the lines of fiction or documentary, fact or suggestion, linear or interactive approach. Each partner co-produced the work of one artist. The end results are six fully developed works of art, all of them variations on the same theme: innovation of narration.

‘Moving Stories’ is a travelling exhibition. The six new works are presented as a coherent series by the six partners in their countries throughout 2011. The results of ‘Moving Stories’ will also be compiled in a publication.
