Small Stories Bigger Picture

Visual Storytelling at Graphic Design Festival Breda
Posted by Gestalten—08/2012

The “Small Stories Bigger Picture” exhibition at the Museum of the Image (MOTI) in Breda, Netherlands shows how image-makers create and share visual stories from various perspectives.

Designers are expanding upon a method of transferring knowledge that has been used since prehistoric times: storytelling. By blending other disciplines such as photography, film, animation, and graphic design, new image forms emerge that visualize events, information, and opinions. The exhibition explores visual storytelling from the thematic perspectives of the poet, journalist, scientist, and agitator.

More details and a full list of participating designers can be found of the event’s main page. The exhibition is curated by Gestalten creative director and editor Sven Ehmann, Dennis Elbers (GDFB), Geert van Eyck (Breda Photo), and Jan Scharlackens (Breda Photo).

“Small Stories Bigger Picture” is part of Graphic Design Festival Breda, five days of visual storytelling from September 19th to 23rd with workshops, lectures, performances, exhibitions, urban interventions, and master classes with 125 international designers. “Small Stories Bigger Picture” runs until November 25th.
