GOGBOT 2021, 9-12 september 2021, Enschede

From fake news to deepfake media, reality is under attack. How much fakery can society handle before it collapses? It is time to identify the fakers. It is time to take back control.

It is time to Recalibrate Reality! 

GOGBOT FESTIVAL 2021
9 – 12 September, Enschede

GOGBOT 2021 dives into the world of fake news, deepfakes, and conspiracy theories.

 

Four days of exhibitions, performances, presentations, and discussions focus on the post-truth society. What is it? Where does it come from?  How do we stop it from tearing our community apart?

We look at fake news as big business, bad politics, and intricate fantasies. The world is addicted to all.

 

Fake news and deepfakes tap into our weaknesses. They abuse our desire for simplicity: we are given Unbelievable Truths where there are none. They abuse our tendency to doubt: certainties sell. They abuse our fears: fake news gives the illusion of power, the power of knowledge. But most of all, they abuse our desire to escape reality: reality is turned into a game, and the game is on us. Will we ever be able to turn it around?

 

INFOCALYPSE NOW – Time To Recalibrate Reality / GOGBOT 2021 offers information therapy. Opt for shock therapy or mindfulness in the exhibitions, or choose cognitive therapy and analytical training in the symposium and talks.
