Wor(l)d Making: Fluid Fictions

Panel with Sarah M Harrison, Kerstin Honeit, Tarek Lakhrissi, Magareth Haines
Curated and moderated by Isabel de Sena

That storytelling, as Hannah Arendt writes, “reveals meaning without committing the error of defining it" is perhaps the main reason why it offers an alluring playing field for artists and authors eager to negotiate their encounter with the world, while not forgoing to do some worldmaking and worldbreaking of their own.

This panel invites poets, visual artists and fiction writers with divergent approaches to storytelling to explore how fiction constructs reality, as well as the power that affords and how the building blocks used to erect dominant narratives can be cracked and reassembled to spawn more fluid fictions.

Straddling Sci-Fi, parafiction, speculative fiction, (self-)mythology, Eco-Fiction, legend, fable and fantasy, these practitioners create new fictional realities and alter existing ones through their incursions into the shapeshifting, transmutational possibilities fiction offers.
