The field of tension between fact and fiction has been researched and questioned for much longer within the field of documentary art. When Fact Is Fiction collects various contributions by and about artists who explore the boundaries between fact and fiction by playing with the 'documentary'. The book offers a broad background to documentary art practices, such as working with archival material in art or exploring one's subjective point of departure when creating new work. This book observes how artists use the thin line between fact and fiction as a tool to imagine versions of the future. When Fact Is Fiction shows how the playing field between fact and fiction and the elasticity of concepts such as truth and reality can be used to have an impact in today's world. With various black and white images.
