In Collaboration with: New Media Former Summer School
The online multimedia exhibition “Narrative Texts and Maps” will be accessible on the New Media Society website from 7 May 2021. The texts and narrative maps of this show are the result of a three-month collective process that the participants of the “1001: Collective Writing” workshop went through last winter (Dec 2020- Mar 2021). During the workshop, participants residing in diverse parts of the world, such as Tehran, Hamedan, Shiraz, Boston, Berlin, Vancouver, Toronto, etc, shared their location-based experiences and observations by the means of writing and mapping.
The exhibition “Narrative Texts and Maps” is the result of the third joint workshop held by Rojia Forouhar and Amirhossein Khorshidfar, focusing on the correlation between space, architecture, and literature.
