36 Short Stories

The anthology 36 Short Stories;brings together a selec­tion of works and texts, pub­lished, exhib­ited, or collected during Bétonsalon – Center for Art and Research’s pro­gram. 

Presented in the form of a col­lec­tion of short sto­ries, it brings into dialog thirty-six voices and expe­ri­ences—per­sonal and col­lec­tive, fac­tual and fic­tional, and some times for­gotten. Encompassing authors from a wide range of dis­ci­plines, con­tri­bu­tions explore the mar­gins of tra­di­tional his­to­ri­og­raphy and the dis­tri­bu­tion of knowl­edge, employing fic­tion as a means to resist uni­for­mity. In a word, each seeks to decon­struct estab­lished norms and to offer new read­ings of the his­to­ries we con­struct.
