An exhibition by The Tunnel; a collective based in London involved in group shows in a variety of unconventional spaces such as disused shops, Church's, book stores and warehouses.

About

A group exhibition concerning the subject of Fake News or Yellow Journalism and its historical and contemporary context. The core of the exhibition is how language and images are used to constantly alter our perceptions of current events, history, time and ultimately identity.

The ever present all pervasive media constantly reshapes our consciousness; creating a form of intellectual degradation, that in the long term benefits contemporary society by creating more efficient consumers.

The exhibition draws inspiration from George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty Four(1949), Guy Debord's The Society of the Spectacle(1967) and Jorge Louis Borges's Labyrinths(1962).

"But where did knowledge exist? Only in his own consciousness, which in any case must soon be annihilated. And if all the others accepted the lie thta the party imposed-if all records told the same-then the lie passed into history and became truth."

George Orwell

The spectacle is not a collection of images; it is a social relation among people mediated by images.
