The new temporary exhibition in House of European History is 'under construction' Fake (f)or Real

Fake (f)or Real

House of European History, Brussels (BE)

Step into a labyrinth of deception. Visitors are transported into another dimension, where their perception of reality is challenged. As they navigate through delusory mirror lanes, they will be nudged to question everything they see, read and touch. Shrouded with mystery and suspense – they will encounter stories of falsification and forgery. Can you tell what is real and what is not?

Unmasking the truth

Distorted versions of history, science, and politics wait to be unmasked. As visitors navigate through the orthogonal maze structure of the exhibition – they will come across stories of forgery and falsification. In chronological order, they will be taken on a journey that’ll help them understand the universal mechanisms behind deceit via six case studies.

Take the wheel

As you move from historical to contemporary stories of fake – you will play a vital role in unraveling the truth. You will reconstruct stories, create your own relics, participate in a narrative experience where you are not just a fly on the wall but an active decision-maker. What’s more? You can make your own false World War II identity card with the help of a master forger for a hands-on experience.

Building your own reality

We have made the walls from a reflective, opaque material – this labyrinthic structure creates an illusion. The design concept comes together to establish a sense of mystery, between the known and the unknown. In real life too, you are the architect of your own truth – do you choose to believe old stories because they are familiar or are you ready to dig deeper?

Debunking fakes

An interactive screen at the end of the exhibition leaves you to be the judge. You create your personal filter bubble to understand how fake news works. The algorithm-driven space is a thought-provoking culmination to the exhibition forcing you to question your relationship with fake news.
