How To Do Things with Fiction
Barcelona, Arnhem, 2015 – going on
Research and curatorial project by Sergi Selvas (Mixité).
The production of knowledge through speculative mechanisms leading to creative processes like science fiction, genre endowed with aesthetic and conceptual powers, transforms specific baselines for understanding. From research on fiction as a strategy for the development of projects propose a parabola: the use of a fictionalized reality to speak of made reality. That is, the design and production of a script for a story that proposes to its interpreters to create shared spaces of exchange with their reality.
Four projects have already been developed within this research, Have you ever seen yourself from the other side of the wall?, Land of Speculation, DAI Con. (dutchartinstitute.eu), and Couching Fiction.
