Media says, the president says the media is lying. Varoufakis‘ middle-finger was real after all. Hitler’s diaries are not. The Steak is vegan. Wasps are flies. Breasts are plastic. So are the flowers.
Fact or Fake? Original or imitation?
Forgery, fraud, lies, deception, allegations. Fake news, fake followers, fake accounts, fake cheese, fake orgasms, artificial leather.
Are we surrounded by lies? From innocent trickery to deceit, we are being pranked and misled, we’re lying to others and to ourselves. We pretend, feign, and simulate.
How does deception turn into disappointment and suspicion into prejudice? Are we guided by fear and skepticism? What is real, what is fake, and who decides?
We invite you to ask questions, to uncover, to lie, to fake. Tell us about alternative truths. Expose fake facts. Lead us down the garden path.
Send us your work! We are looking for photography, film and media art.
A selection of the submissions will be presented at this year’s final exhibition of Galerie BOHAI in Oktober 2017.
