How to survive the post-truth society

JUNE 30 – AUGUST 15 2021

FAKE ME HARD is a spectacular exhibition at the interface of art and technology by the creators of ROBOT LOVE and TEC ART from June 30 to August 15, 2021 at AVLMundo and GroupA, Rotterdam. The full exhibition and festival FAKE ME HARD kicks off during Art Rotterdam.

How do we survive the post-truth society? Are people in control, or are algorithms and AI taking over? Will they be the new gods? Do they determine what is fact or fiction? Are human narratives slowly becoming irrelevant?

The recent storming of the Capitol in Washington, D.C. by pro-Trump rioters, partly attributable to algorithms that widely disseminate QAnon theories, shows technology is not neutral, and poses a direct threat to democracy. How we decide to use automation and artificial intelligence (AI) determines whether society becomes a new feudal age or an ecosystem where differences are given the opportunity to flourish.

Big tech has become a supreme and opaque system, driven by a handful of powerful companies granting or revoking the privilege of a platform. People have become scattered ‘users’ in fake news environments, condemned to their own bubble, a context-disconnected, illusory world. To speak in Matrix terms: we can no longer choose between pills. Only the blue pill is available.

FAKE ME HARD takes the audience on a trip into a new dimension. The loss of meaning as we know it may sound alarming, but Team Human does not give up easily. With more than 40 artists on the front lines, we explore our cultural capital.

AVL Mundo X Operator Live Session
*UPDATE – AVL Mundo x Operator Live Session = Postponed*⠀


We regret to announce that we have to cancel our first Live Session due to the tightened corona measures. We are looking
forward to welcoming you on a new date which we can hopefully announce soon. Make sure to follow our social channels to stay tuned about this.⠀

Much love and stay safe, Team Operator & AVL Mundo.


Let’s Get Physical, but don’t stand too close! As part of the exhibition, AVL Mundo and Operator are teaming up for the first Operator Live Session the 2nd of October at Atelier Van Lieshout . Be prepared for an evening full of Dutch absurdism where live music and performance meet. Performing bands will be Le Motat and De Witte Kunst. Get your tickets soon because the seats are limited.

About the bands:

De Witte Kunst is on the rise. The Dutch music duo consists of multi-instrumentalist Lyckle de Jong and writer / singer Koen van Bommel. Together they make a kind of cabaret pop with deep roots in the synth pop of the early eighties. An absurd performance with lyrics about Atlantis and the virtual world. Worth experiencing.

LE MOTAT = Tato Wesselo’s alter ego. He create Dutch Weirdo Pop with balls: about sex, about love, and about people who have to put their HEAD in the ICE. His performances are raw, unexpected and absurd, but it will also let you sing along with one of his catchy pop songs. Last year Motat produced his first EP1 together with Roy van Rosendaal (Figgie), which he will release on September 25. Fancy something new? JOIN CLUB LE MOTAT.
