What will the world of tomorrow look like? And what ideas for possible futures can literature offer? In April 2022, authors from various literary fields met at the invitation of poet Tim Holland, capsule editor Lukas Dubro, and the LCB to spend three days creating new text and performance ideas that advance and rethink the field of speculative fiction, from technology-oriented science fiction to speculative feminism.

Now, the subsequent work phase and the project will culminate in a three-day finale: on the first day, we will once again survey what Speculative Fabulating already has to offer with two rounds of discussions. On the following two days, we will present the anthology "Collapse and Hope Porn. 13 Prospects for the Future" at Kunsthaus Acud, which gathers the results of the unconference: a form-rich outlook on the future of Speculative Fabulation.
