The Fantasy is the culmination of a period of research into tensions within the dilapidated Dutch city of Almere, and its failure to realize an architectural plan to become a utopian haven. The book takes the form of both travelogue and timeless voyage. Three characters, based on the city’s actual residents, share accounts of a fictional trip that traces a route based on small irregularities, curiosities, and almost invisible details that were uncovered while wandering through the city. The Fantasy is a work of fiction, which, in merging social, political, and urban investigation with street observation, emphasizes how daily urban situations and invisible street practitioners define geopolitical conditions.
