A virtual discussion about art and propaganda, in partnership with the Pacific Council on International Policy.

“Fake news” and “alternative facts” have become buzzwords of our time. After the twentieth-century struggles between top-down media propaganda and bottom-up media exposures, we acquired unprecedented access to information. Nevertheless, it has become increasingly difficult to separate fact from interpretation. In our current moment, how do we remain (self-)critical in a world of politically split realities? What can art teach us about fact and fiction?

In Search of Our Times is a six panel discussions presented as part of Wende Conversations: A Discussion Series Supported by Susan Horowitz and Rick Feldman.
