We conclude this year’s conference with curator Lauren Boyle, exploring how documentary practice can serve to capture what could happen, rather than what has happened. We will hear from artists, filmmakers, and thinkers who find truth through fiction or the fictional in everyday truths. They use the language and tools of nonfiction filmmaking, storytelling, sociological research, startups, and other common modalities to reconfigure failed narratives and build alternative futures. While imagining new possibilities doesn’t guarantee making them come true, it sets the stage for a multiplicity of new potentialities. Truthful documents of the fictions that stage our everyday facts, these speculative realisms are halfway to making a new world.
The conference takes place in the Social Cinema at Kunsthal Charlottenborg.
