Who is this for?
This seminar is ideal for artists, photographers, and creatives whose work focuses on storytelling, and for those wishing to expand and enrich their present practice around narratives. The goal is for participants to leave with new tools and thinking processes to develop your own storytelling methodologies.
Laia Abril is a multidisciplinary artist working with photography, text, video and sound based in Barcelona. Abril’s projects are produced across platforms as installations, books, web docs, and films. Her long-form project A History of Misogyny is a visual research undertaken through an historical and contemporary comparative framework. In her first chapter, On Abortion, Abril documents and conceptualises the dangers and damages caused by women’s lack of legal, safe and free access to abortion. Using extensive research methodologies, Abril draws on the past to highlight the long, continuous erosion of women’s reproductive rights to the present-day. She weaves together visual, audio and textual evidence to construct questions about ethics, morality and stories around abortion that have been invisible until now.
