RELATED EVENTS // Volumes: The Zurich Art Book Fair
“Building Stories: Exploring the Future through Fiction in Design” was exhibited at Volumes 2018 in Kunsthalle Zurich from 23 - 25 November.
“Design fictions” are not about planning, feasibility, or prognostics of the future. Rather, they are about enabling the suspension of disbelief to explore a broad range of alternative perspectives. Design fictions can expand our notion of possible futures and enable us to critically engage with them.
Each issue of The Site Magazine includes design fictions to further thematic and speculative explorations of the future. “Building Stories” surveys contributions from Traumnovelle, Oskar Koliander, Nicole la Hausse de Lalouveriere, Rob Kovitz, and others.
