Small Narration operates somewhere between a performance and video art, between a personal confession and an academic lecture. “When in 2006 we discovered that my grandfather was a long-time collaborator of the communist Security Services, I had moved away from Big Narrations. This lecture performance confronts my artistic choices with a history I had no influence upon.” A subtle yet cruel account of a struggle to cope with one family’s hidden history. A show about memory, treason and redefining who we are by facing the past.
