The Authentic Fake is presented by us in collaboration with Yami-ichi, Resonance FM, Brouwerij ‘t Ij and The Vinyl Art Project.

It is an interdisciplinary project of visual and live art that explores the simulation of the real — a reality generated not from the observable world but from ideas. We would question concepts such as identity, provenance, and originality, as well as the binary distinctions between genders, nature and artificial, factuality and fiction, all through a collaborative approach.
