(...) It matters what stories tell stories. It matters what thoughts think thoughts. It matters what worlds make worlds (...)” – Donna Haraway

This year, Rietveld Uncut and Studium Generale Rietveld invited us to ‘take a walk on the wild side’ and enter a space beyond current systems and structures of rule; to regard ‘fabulation’ – fabricating the real, or speculative fiction – as both an artistic, social and political capacity to produce or uncover visions, stories and histories that are radically discontinuous from official and dominant narratives about our lives and our living together. The effect of this on our consciousness and imaginations may turn out to be very real or liberating.
