Fiction, for Real is composed of videos by 9 artists, each dealing with different aspects of reality, cinema and para-fictional narrative. By taking the liberty to rewrite familiar stories, to appropriate clichés and characteristics of pop-culture, to fabricate personal and historical events, or by hiring an actor to perform in "real life", the videos create a constant shift between escapism and awareness of cinematic manipulation. The works both expose and employ spectatorship, turning the excitement of evading reality into ambivalence.
