#054 AUTHENTICITY REVISITED

The aphorism “Authenticity is dead, long live authenticity!” proves vital in the prolific debate on authenticity in the post-digital age. Authenticity is in the eye of the beholder. There is a general understanding of its meaning, oftentimes based on notions of introspection and soul-searching; some, however, deem the debate altogether irrelevant. However, for a younger generation of artists, new technologies contribute to a new understanding of the scope of authenticity.

This is a collections of the videos that were shown, both at the exhibition and before the lectures, during Impakt Festival 2016: Authenticity?
