Elia Khalaf: Made Up Memories


Made-Up Memories is a generative workshop where people of all ages make their own fictional autobiographies. It’s the DIY way to learn history, both personal and shared. Participants are presented with curated archives and creative prompts in an effort to relate to each other fictionally in a way not possible through an imposed reality. Buried stories and unsung heroes are unearthed in the process. The emerging artworks, part-confession, part-concoction, will be put to print and launched during Untitled, Miami Beach 2016, in an anti-chronicle. This will be a collection of the funniest, simplest, most insightful, "I remembers".
