Speculative Fabulation

By Fabien

Or “narration spéculative” in French. “A type of “narration” that enables one to unfold new worlds through arousing an appetite for what’s possible (what could or could have taken place). It is not just about understanding a totally new creation, the remarkable difference is that it is about placing lures susceptible of bringing forth today possibilities that were already in situations.

Enlarging the spectrum, the relationship to History, to stories, inventing sensitive ways re-unfolding in order to re-play and see what we sidelined, a whole series of possibilities that are still active today, to transform things. Enlarging the spectrum, including forms of science fiction (…). Multiplying types of approaches and possible narrative models. Creating characters, myths, inventing new situations to intensify this world.” Fabrizio Terranova
