In association with the Royal College of Art, Science & Fiction situates fresh talent from one of the UK’s most innovative photography courses alongside texts by novelists, artists, academics and philosophers.

Through the channels of science and fiction—science as data, image algorithms and the surrender to technological temptations; and fiction as invention, construction and critique—these emerging photographers address the questions and tensions that surround the current state of the photographic image.

Science & Fiction features texts by acclaimed creative director, designer and brand strategist, Michael Salu; Moscow-born novelist and critic Zinovy Zinik; artists Mark Aerial Waller and Olivier Richon; and philosopher Alexander García Düttmann.

The latest in our series with the Royal College of Art and renowned photographer Rut Blees Luxemburg, Science & Fiction follows on from Waving Flags, Seeing for Others and Hardcover.

As a showcase for fresh talent, a special one-night-only exhibition by the RCA’s emerging international artists will be held at WORK Gallery, London WC1 from 6-8 pm on Thursday, 22 May.
