Is truth a construction rather than discovery in the era of post-truth politics? Developments in the media have contributed to the production and abundance of all kinds of information, further obscuring the border between factual news and propaganda. These developments have thus increased the scale of phenomena such as the dissemination of false and biased, manipulated information, including theories of conspiracy and populist discourses. What is the role of media in this chaos ushered in by digital media technologies? The panel discussion will take place after the screening of the film “What is Democracy” in DokuKino at 14:00.
