'Fake Me Hard', AVL Mundo, Rotterdam (NL)


30 June 2021 – 15 August 2021

On the cutting-edge of art and technology, FAKE ME HARD explores the complex reality of the 21st century with futuristic installations by over 40 artists, performances, and debates. Visitors await an uncanny landscape that they can enter safely, each with their own fake profile. Music-making robots set the tone playfully and with humor. A low hanging light haze leads the way. Do algorithms determine what is fact or fiction? Are human narratives slowly becoming irrelevant? How to survive the post-truth society?In the year 2021, we can no longer afford to feign that technology is neutral. In these times of deepfake videos and populism, it is becoming increasingly difficult to tell the difference between ‘real’ and ‘not real’. See the promo video here.

Bringing your favourite film to the market square, Atelier Van Lieshout’s Werner – Guerilla Cinema is a cinema on wheels visiting neighbourhoods in Rotterdam. The vehicle, a colossus that balances between tractor and armoured vehicle, has been converted into a mobile cinema specially for the International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR). The name is a tribute to cinema daredevil Werner Herzog.
