The exhibition pays tribute to the post factual world that crystalized itself in 2016. This multi-layered, complex and sometimes only subjective view on the world that feeds itself with bits and pieces of information from the Internet. The new media, with its myriad screens and streams, makes reality so fragmented it becomes ungraspable, pushing us towards, or allowing us to flee, into virtual realities and fantasies. The flight into techno-fantasies is intertwined with economic and social uncertainty. The abuse of facts and the decline of the authorities on facts have revealed how utterly fragile and easily manipulated facts can be and how virtually all authoritative information sources need to be challenged.
