How appealing it is to change people’s mind? When opinions differ, being persuasive can have a positive meaning and produce a genuine response. It is an argument that requires techniques, ranging within speech to conversation. Seen as acts of transformation, this group show presents various backgrounds, reflecting different social structures and beliefs. They expand the field of language to convince the audience through installations, images and video works. Hence, without visitors there is no persuasion.
