The search for truthfulness and the perfection of deception are not insurmountable opposites for the artistic positions in the #FAKE exhibition when dealing with the medium of photography. In times of media overload with fake news, the dividing line between fiction and reality is becoming increasingly blurred. The aim of the works presented is to raise awareness of this. With a broad spectrum of photographic approaches ranging from documentary, journalistic and conceptual to experimental strategies, collective values are questioned.
Participating artists: Weronika Gęsicka (Poland), Lori Nix & Kathleen Gerber (USA), Max Pinckers (Belgium), Torsten Schumann Germany), Karina-Sirkku Kurz (Germany)
The exhibition #FAKE can be seen from 18 March to 11 June 2023 at the Worpsweder Kunsthalle and is curated by Wolfgang Zurborn.
