“In an age in which it seems impossible to create happy endings; in which we seem to make Dystopias the way earlier ages made Utopias; in which we appear to have lost confidence in our ability to improve the world […] the world of the imagination is a place into which the long arm of the law is unable to reach.
This idea – the opposition of imagination to reality, which is also the opposition of art to politics – is of great importance, because it reminds us that we are not helpless; that to dream is to have power. […]
Unreality is the only weapon with which reality can be smashed, so that it can subsequently be reconstructed”.
Salman Rushdie, Imaginary Homelands
