Fact and Fiction: Art, News, and Propaganda
Join the Wende Museum and the Pacific Council on International Policy for a virtual discussion about art and propaganda.
"Fake news” and “alternative facts” have become buzzwords of our time. After the twentieth-century struggles between top-down media propaganda and bottom-up media exposures, we acquired unprecedented access to information. Nevertheless, it has become increasingly difficult to separate fact from interpretation. In our current moment, how do we remain (self-)critical in a world of politically split realities? What can art teach us about fact and fiction?
