BLT19 Fiction

Narrative is key to understanding. But how can we engage with the narratives that BLT19 suggests?

Traditional non-fiction criticism is only one way. Just as artistic responses such as we see in the Keep the Door of My Lips exhibition offer a way of “reading” BLT19 materials, so too does fiction.

Such fiction does not have to reflect or imitate obediently, but can pinpoint gaps, uncertainties, possible resistances large or small, even highlight the limits of possibility.

This is why we have started to publish here fictional material inspired by the primary material on the BLT19 website.

The first, a short character study by Alexander Rose called “The Workwoman” is available here.
