Building Fictions (BF) is a publishing project that sets out to explore ‘building’ as a methodology, with the intent to highlight the potential of storytelling within practices at the intersection of art, design, architecture, literature. Not limited by the first definition of a building as a space, BF is interested in collaboration as an assembling, layering process. The projects published often are the result of collaborative work from which emerge questions on the established relation between text and image as autonomous yet related languages. While investigating fictional strategies and their potential within artistic production, BF wants to find out where those strategies are at play in the context of real constructions, could those be made of concrete or be more ephemeral, metaphorical, thus anchoring the effects of fictions within the real world.
