The fluorescent skin of an octopus, a learning algorithm, a lost plane in the East China Sea, an archaeological laboratory - temporal frames and contexts are currently mixed and new hybrid beings, intersections between science, technology, myth and fiction, emerge both in physical and virtual spaces. How does fiction, with the help of its collaborators - invention, simulation and emotion - shape today's (hyper)reality?

The exhibition "f(r)iction in between" deals with contemporary manifestations of fiction in artistic practice, media world and political contexts. The invited artists are united in their interest in articulating the mixture and involvements of this present fictionalisation in their artistic language. In doing so they make use of the staging of fiction from the genre of sci-fi literature, film and media history, national myths and collective narratives. With video installations and photography, object art and performance, the exhibition questions the impact of fiction on the worlds of bodies and emotions and presents surreal and strange scenarios for discussion.

Artists: Rebecca Agnes, Adam S. Fischer & Inga Martel, Wu Chi-Yu, Ya-Wen Fu, Yun-Ting Hung, Kristina Jurotschkin, Marie-Eve Levasseur, Robert Sieg, Wu Pohan

Curators: Kristina Semenova, Ya-Wen Fu
