Disillusion 2.0?
You were told that a new democracy of communication was possible, that the lies of corporate media were to disappear and that your voice was going to play an active role in the formation of public discourse.
You were deluded into believing that even the world, this world, would become a better place through detailed diffusion of low-cost technologies, through the birth of telematic networks and the establishment of blogs and social networks.
While the watered-down fantasies that came with the rise of web 2.0 are being dissolved, a bitter consciousness remains: that communication itself, after all, is an illusion. That information, however probable it may seem, is still a fiction and that a fake, in the end, is only a fake. Anyway.

Experience the power of detourning communication!
Rising directly from the ashes of the blogosphere, the imaginary group Les Liens Invisibles is proud to present A Fake is a Fake, the ultimate platform dedicated to fake publishing, that will finally render your communication strong, incisive, and paradoxical.
Thrust your voice beyond the limits of reality and explore the new frontiers of detourning communication: you can finally speak with the voice of Power.

GET INSPIRED

When power tells the truth and claims it to be Natural, it needs to be denounced, however inhuman and absurd the structure of reality may be, which is reflected and reproduced by the order of speech (the discourse of order): it consolidates. Revealing the delirious nature of Power. But not only. One must take over the position of Power (reclaiming it), speak with its voice.
(Excerpt from "False informations produce real events", A/traverso, 1976)

DISCLAIMER

Fake means not real. In this sense, all forms of representation, all forms of narration of the Real are based on overblown mechanisms of falsity and illusion.
From the languages of art to mass communication, a representation is always only a representation, a means, a fake, nothing more. [Continue]
