These Stories Will be Different National Tour

If you think history is on your side, let me tell you women did not write these books. If they did, the stories would be different— Christine de Pizan

These Stories Will Be Different is a national tour curated by Jose da Silva and Museum and Galleries NSW that brings together three of Zanny Begg’s most significant video installations, including The City of Ladies (with Elise McLeod) 2017, The Beehive 2018, and Stories of Kannagi 2019. Between them, these works reimagine a medieval feminist utopia, probe the unsolved murder of a high-profile anti-gentrification campaigner and explore the connections between love, loss, and language in diasporic communities. The videos tell stories, but they also challenge the politics of storytelling itself. Drawing on ancient literary traditions, non-linear timeframes, and computer-generated randomisation, Zanny Begg invites you to see the world differently.
