Cassandra Syndrome, by Paco Chanivet

What is the future and why do we yearn to decipher it? What have its manifestations been from antiquity to the present? What role does speculative fiction play in the future? Is it a form of anticipation or determination? Oracle or prison? In this laboratory we will address these and other questions surrounding the imaginary futures inscribed in literature. The aim will be to create an anthology of micro-narrative experiments based on an open, optimistic, ambitious and committed conversation about what is to come.
