Whether we consider past, future or present, fiction has a critical role. It provides ways of knowing, understanding and questioning ourselves and our histories; of analysing our cultures and dreaming of new futures. From unearthed sewer networks to global FinTech skyscrapers, gothic carnival facades to suspicious and auditory happenings, six new commissions for Bold Tendencies 2019 explored a wealth of speculative visions that haunt and excite our imagination, representing the diverse and tumultuous landscape of our media, politics, social environments and culture. One where the confluence of appearance, fiction and reality is all to play for.
