Publication for Faking the Real

The publication is published on the occasion of the exhibition Faking the Real. The Art of Enticement at Kunsthaus Graz from 22.09.2022 to 08.01.2023.

Around the explosive term Fake, the exhibition at Kunsthaus Graz traces the development of the interfaces between graphic design, media images and art since 1971. With works by Rosemarie Trockel, Gerwald Rockenschaub and Signe Pierce, among others, it reflects both political upheavals and technological developments. Faking the Real explores the question of the manipulation of realities and reveals an evolution from posters in public space through to interventions in social media. The exhibition is part of the large-scale special show The Art of Enticement, which examines 100 years of graphic design and poster art from different perspectives.
