What makes a good fake?
How do we identify fakes?
Can technology detect authenticity?
How can we detect fake sincerity?
What are the legal and ethical implication of fakes?
When is a fake better than the real thing?
Please join us for a convivial discussion about the art, craft, and science of fakes hosted by the Centre for the History of Emotions and the Tech and Public Interest research group.
In the spirit of a salon, clever, incisive, and unpredictable conversation is guaranteed. Bring your own short (2-3 minute) provocation, performance, or dramatic reading – or just turn up to see where the conversation takes us.
To get us started, expert insights on the topic of fakes will be offered by five featured speakers:
Oron Catts (fake meats) | Jani McCutcheon (copyright and authenticity) | Julia Powles (merchants of truth) | Kathryn Prince (fake feelings) | Ted Snell (art fakes)
Participation is free, but registration via the url is imperative for catering purposes (wine! cheese! no fakes!).
