Post Fake Turn. International Conference (2017)
The conference organized by the Faculty of Fine Arts of Brno University of Technology (FFA BUT) thematically covered questions of relation between the art, mainly the digital image, and truth. In the age denominated by the attribute "post-factual", the new evaluation is taking place: how have the conditions of digital distribution changed in the Information Age? Does this new situation make fertile ground for cynical resignation, or conversely, for the hopeful creation of new ethical and political possibilities? What role should the art play in the reformation of our understanding of truth?
