Bait & Switch is the first In-Lab of 2019/20 programme, initiated by the participants Anna Moreno, Kent Chan and Mat Do.
Fiction are the (re)imaginations of realities, that in its subsequent conception bears the potential to affect the realities that it derives from. Art in its tangential relationship to reality often puts it in close proximity, but often differing operations from fiction. Fiction allows us countless opportunities to invent new worlds, summon ideas and furnish futures. Could we garner a deeper understanding of both through the lens of the other?
Through workshops and lectures, this In-Lab proposes to examine fiction through different perspectives: its radical potential, failures, engenderment and dilution.
