It is not fake if it fools you – 3 theses on unsticking fakeness

Nishant Shah



When it comes to fake news and misinformation, the real problem is not whether the information is correct but whether it fools us. Who contrives the moment of truthiness? Who gets to determine what is fake? What happens when a fake passes off as a real? Or contrarily, when the real disguises itself as fake? Drawing from queer, feminist, and racial movements and incidents on the digital web, the talk shows us that fakeness has to be unpacked as an attribute of the person and not of the information.

The Q&A to this keynote will take place in the NDF Think Tank in the Expo-Area.
