HYBRIDS: Forging New Realities as Counter-Narrative aims to explore the new atmosphere of trans-disciplinary experimentation across divergent fields and sectors in the arts. We asked ourselves this: how is the act of narration evolving with the waves of counter-narratives that have flooded our knowledge systems, and what kinds of narratives might we need where we are heading? The book, edited by Salvatore Vitale and Saba Askary presents a collection of essays, interviews and visual responses to four points of departure: “The Speed of Narratives”, “An Evolution of Reality”, “Giving, Taking and Stealing the Right to Narrate” and “A Textured Future”. With texts and works by Morehshin Allahyari, Valentina Tanni, Max Pinckers, Tj Demos, Hoda Afshar, Alan Butler, Jean-Vincent Simonet and Nina Mangalanayagam among others.
