Power. Control. Regime. Surveillance. Conflict
Our reality is dystopian and as a result we create fiction that we can escape to. There are things that fiction can do well that non-fiction often fails to do. We must learn from history, or we are doomed to repeat it. The lessons from history don’t have to come in the form of perfect fact. By placing historical and contemporary situations into a fictional world and playing them out, we can learn the consequences. Fiction is our chance to mess up.
We can all change the world one artwork at a time.
