Fake news + alternative information at How much of this is fiction at Liverpool’s FACT, Mar 2 – May 21

28 February 2017

The How much of this is fiction group exhibition is on at Liverpool’s FACT, opening March 2 and running to May 21.

Curated by Annet Dekker and David Garcia in collaboration with Ian Alan Paul, the show features work by !Mediengruppe Bitnik, Morehshin Allahyari, Coco FuscoSuperflux, The Yes Men and UBERMORGEN among others.

The show explores “radical shift in the boundary between fiction and reality in a world increasingly governed by ‘post-truth’ politics,” and will also be accompanied by an opening day of talks by the artists and curators, with a further programme of workshops over the weekend, dedicated to exploring “fake news and alternative facts”.

See the FACT website for details.**

UBERMORGEN @ Carroll/Fletcher, Oct 11

7 October 2013

Swiss-Austrian-American duo UBERMORGEN will be presenting their first solo exhibition, u s e r u n f r i e n d l y, at London’s Carroll / Fletcher, running October 11 to November 16. Featuring work across installations, videos, websites, actions, pixellated prints and digital-oil paintings, it promises a “hyper-active, super-enhanced exploration of censorship, surveillance, torture, democracy, e-commerce, and newspeak”.

Keeping things topical will be two new installations ‘Do You Think That’s Funny? – The Edward Snowden Files’ (2013) and ‘CCTV – A Parallel Universe’ (2013), as well  as a section of UBERMORGEN’s Net.Art works curated by Berlin artist Aram Bartholl and presented across an offline wireless router system, in a similar fashion as his recent OFFLINE ART: HARDCORE in Germany, to which the duo also contributed and is still running until October 13.

u s e r u n f r i e n d l y also comes accompanied by a publication including an essay by curator Magda Tyżlik-Carver and conversations between UBERMORGEN and Austrian quantum physicist Dr. Tobias Noebauer, as well as NSA intelligence leaker and fugitive Edward Snowden.

See the Carroll / Fletcher website for more details. **
