We can understand Based on a True Story as an exhibition essay from northern Europe and the Baltics. It focuses on narrative and documentary tendencies that are very well represented in contemporary art from this region. What are the motives behind visual artists’ need to tell stories? How do they work with facts and transmit their experiences?
The exhibition admits to a fascination with stories based on real events. In three narrative lines, it allows the artists to speak of frustration, routine, and mysticism in the life of social groups often operating on the edges of social acknowledgement.
