Fake Me Hard
Jun 30 Aug 15 2021–
AVL Mundo • Online / Rotterdam
A spectacular exhibition about the “post-truth” society. At the interface of art and technology, FAKE ME HARD explores the complex reality of the 21st century.
How do we survive the “post-truth” society? Are people in control or are algorithms taking over? Artificial Intelligences are already characterized as omniscient. Will they become the new Gods? Do they determine what is fact or fiction while human truths slowly become irrelevant?
Technology was once a tool in the service and extension of human beings. But tech has become a supreme system, driven by a handful of big companies. People are playing a part as “users” in fake news environments, automatically generated from their individually tailored profiles. Each of us is condemned to their own bubble, a meaningfully disconnected, illusory world. To use Matrix terms: we can no longer choose between the red or the blue pill. Only the blue pill is available.
FAKE ME HARD takes the audience on a trip into a new dimension. Physical and online locations become players in a magical landscape. The loss of meaning may sound alarming, yet team human does not give in. With the artists on the front line, we investigate our cultural capital, we navigate the complexity of the 21st century.
