Exploring Age of Misinformation

'Never argue with a man who buys ink by the barrel and paper by the ton.' That was the old American adage, when newspapers held all the power. But we're living in the age of misinformation and fake news, didn't you know, and it's fair to say times have changed. York Chang’s exhibition Zero Sum Games evaluates the status of language against a backdrop in which belief defies fact and is readily substituted for data; and where language and images serve as malleable currency on an ideological battleground. This exhibit, made up of film and installations, opens a little window into landscapes of communication where institutional power holds sway. With systems increasingly using language to confuse as much as enlighten us, Chang exposes their potential for fostering counter-narratives or alternate histories.
