TAKE A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE  — Fabulating Alternative Imaginaries in Art and Life

“(…) It matters what stories tell stories. It matters what thoughts think thoughts. It matters what worlds make worlds (…)” — Donna Haraway

Studium Generale Rietveld Academie invites you to think of “fabulation”. As a means of “fabricating the real”, world-making or “speculative fiction”. As an artistic, social and political capacity, welcoming​ alternative histories and other regimes of wanting, being and becoming. Practices of fabulation may enable saying things that are not used in order to distinguish truth from lies but to effectively say things better, to unsettle and to include. Come and take a walk on the wild side with us!
