The Department of Speculative Facts experiments with the reading and staging of text, and the agency of a text in relation the limits of language and the authority of narrative. It aims to distinguish trivial bafflement from productive bafflement, while questioning the definition of productivity, that can move us away from existing values-in and relations-to language towards the construction of new concepts.

The core of the project is based upon an exchange of letters between fact-checkers of the New York Times speaking about the procedures for creating objectivity and truth. Others are invited to rewrite, overwrite and interrogate these letters by channelling their own procedures for ‘factuality’.
