The programme starts in November 2018 with a night of events at Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo: artist Nicoline Van Harskamp presents her film PDGN that portrays a future no longer controlled by national governments or global corporations, and where a new linking language is seen to develop between people through voluntary self-instruction; curator and online media producer Joseph del Pesco will read extracts from his book The Museum Took a Few Minutes to Collect Itself discussing the existence of fictional Museums that defy their real-world counterparts, and thus affirm the importance and value of their reimagining; artist Simon O’Sullivan gives a talk about mythopoesis, myth-science, mythotechnesis addressing fictioning as a ‘counter-strategy’ against today’s post-truth and post-fact political terrain.
