10 - 19 February
From UFOs and the moon landing, to fake news in our post-truth world, conspiracy theories have always existed. However, since the attacks on the World Trade Centre in 2001, and most recently in the American elections, there has been a huge increase and shift in the methods utilised by conspiracy theorists to respond to and share intricately produced views of phenomena.
The Internet provides a way of verifying information, yet has also proved to be the rich ground needed for conspiracists to spread their message. Over ten days of exhibitions, events and online projects, The Photographers’ Gallery will respond to the increased confusion between fact and fiction, examining the role photography and the moving image play within the complex narratives of conspiracy.
