Fake News!

'Fake News' might be considered a recent phenomenon but this exhibition is set to expose it as a centuries-old tradition. Indeed, the manipulation of facts in what we read and see has been going on since at least the 17th century when the chaos and confusion of the Civil War, paired with rising literacy and advances in printing, proved fertile ground for misleading media. Quickly produced and distributed pamphlets offering both the Royalist's and Parliamentarian's versions of events were the Twitter of the 1600s; portraits of political leaders were deliberately designed and altered, influencing the public in much the same way as we use filters and Photoshop now; and, like today, extremist groups jumped on new ways to persecute and spread fear about people based on their faith, politics and ways of life. Discover the truly extraordinary history of this prevalent practice at Fake News, opening on Friday 26th July.
