How much of this is fiction. focuses on politically inspired media art that uses deception in all its forms, and will be showing at HeK from 23 March until 21 May 2017. At the heart of the exhibition is the desire to address one of today’s most urgent political issues: the radical shift in the boundary between fiction and reality in public discourse, in a world increasingly governed by post-truth politics. How much of this is fiction. shows the artist as dark jester, as trickster, using a variety of hoaxes, hacks and ruses to reveal the hidden workings of power structures and the possibility of alternative futures.
The workshop lasts three hours; latecomers cannot be accommodated.
