    Fictional Journal and Baltan Laboratories invite you to the online launch of Fictional Journal, Issue 04 - Responsibility. Fictional Journal is a platform and online publication investigating design’s involvement within society. Triggered by fascinations and questions on urgent political, social and economic happenings, Fictional Journal opens up issues for debate, action and imagining.

    Issue 04 - Responsibility is the result of a open call which sought for finished contributions by designers, artists, writers, sociologists, researchers, visionaries and thinkers, who explore ways in which transforming our economy can restore balance in our relationship with nature and help us on our way towards a more equal and just society.

    You can visit the website to see the previous issues:

    The online event will go through a series of contributions, artworks and essays that are reflecting on three topics:

    Nature’s Economies
    Can our economy become like nature, a closed system that grows, flourishes and decays, where flows of matter, lives and energy are feeding each other and balancing out at the same time?

    Shifting Value
    Can this shift in perception, besides saving us from an environmental crisis, also make us happier and more fulfilled?

    Re-designing Infrastructures
    Could re-designing infrastructures to trigger a bigger change on a societal level?

    Event on Zoom
    On December 17, at 20:00 CET, you can join the launch of Fictional Journal, Issue 04 online on Zoom. The room will be open from 7:45 PM CET. We will start with an introduction hosted by editors Lorenzo Gerbi and Matilde Losi, who will introduce us to the topics and curating process of the fourth issue.
