#064 The Visual Manipulation Of The Mind

Curated by Annemarie Jansen, Bas Postmus, Félice Kuijntjes and Berber Humalda, students at Leiden University who curated this programme as part of their internship at IMPAKT.

This programme has been developed in relation to the IMPAKT annual theme of 2018: Post-Truth.

Moving images are, in their essence, a visual manipulation; a sequence of still images becomes a moving image.

In today’s digitized society images are quickly made, edited, manipulated and distributed. This brings us to the post-truth, people are so used to being manipulated that they don’t even take the time to consider whether something is true or not. A new world is created where every image is ripped out of context and used for the purpose of the message one wants to get across.
