This Panel features a discussion on the role of mass media on perceptions of fact, fiction, and fear. The starting point is the work of Johan Grimonprez on view in the ART gallery.
In provocative and groundbreaking film essays and video installations he explores the evasive effects of media illusion on historical memory.
