Karl Haendel in Fake News: Art, Fiction, Mensonge at the EDF Group Foundation

From the false front page of the New York Times by the Yes Men to the deep fakes of the Bill Posters / Daniel Howe duo , including the fake news printer of Tsila Hassine and Carmel Barnea Brezner Jonas , the exhibition brings together drawings, paintings, sculptures, installations, photos and videos of artists who play with representations of the world to initiate visitors, and particularly the youngest, to the contemporary issues of infox. Between authenticity and inventiveness, realism and dreaminess, the exhibition wavers our beliefs and our perception of reality and plays with our credulous minds.

True or false ? We are all spectators and actors on a daily basis in the proliferation of fake news via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and many other platforms or social networks. Thus, the exhibition deciphers the mechanisms of creation and dissemination of fake news and offers to acquire methods and tips to stop their dissemination and escape manipulations of all kinds, political, economic and social. .

On the occasion of this exhibition intended for future generations, the EDF Group Foundation joined forces with CLEMI
(Center for Media and Information Education), a Canopé network service, in charge of Education for Media and Information (ÉMI) throughout the French education system. An educational booklet, resources and webinars will be made available to teachers and schools to question the subject of fake news, through the prism of art. Thanks to a journey that is both cultural, reflective and educational, everyone is involved in their own visit to understand, feel and question themselves.
