EXPO "Fake for real, a history of forgery and falsification"

STANDING GUIDES – “Vice Versa” Animation around the exhibition Fake For Real – A fantastic and festive tour route designed and implemented by Patrimoine à Roulettes that will allow you to question your own relationship to the true and the false, to the authentic and the fabricated, to the real and illusionary, all by interacting with 10 sphynxes and sphynxes. Once victorious after having met a sufficient number of these creatures, you will be able to celebrate with a silent disco to the sound of music created by artificial intelligences showing that not all the truths are good to take!

Discover fakes and falsifications throughout history, from the time of antiquity, through medieval and modern history until the present era. The exhibition begins with the ancient practice of removing people from official accounts (“Damnatio memoriae”), moving to forgeries in science, history and art, and culminating with “deep fakes” of the contemporary period and false information about the Covid pandemic. Uncover the historical circumstances that explain the appearance of fakes, the motives behind them, their impact and ultimate exposure.
