Formatted Abstract/Summary
Why do some artists make worlds while others make works? This article considers the renewed attention to world-making as a key trope in contemporary artistic practice in relation to the world-making tactics of science fiction. Nelson Goodman’s 1978 book Ways of Worldmaking provides the entry point for this enquiry.
