From the "historical" story, to the Insta-story: narratives shape our relationships with other people, our understanding of society, and our relationship to ourselves.
In a time when reality and fiction, real and fake, information and disinformation merge beyond recognition, "truth" is a strained term. All the more reason for us to be able to differentiate: Who is telling us what - and to what end?
Martina Momo Kunz and Benjamin Spinnler break this down to their own story. Forced into isolation, they face each other for months. Digging into the isolation in their relationship. In their own authenticity and lies. Out comes an epic story. If I tell you my version of the memory enough times, will it become yours?
Oscillating between finely wrought dramaturgy and absolute nonsense, PSEUDOLOGIA PHANTASTICA raises questions about how aware we are of the subliminal beliefs we live by.
