Art and Journalism in the Era of Post-Truth Politics

November 2, 2019, 1—4:30 pm

In conjunction with Truthiness and the News, this symposium brings together three leading figures in the fields of journalism, art history, and museums to reflect on the ethical implications of looking at images and reading the news critically in an era in which the concept of truth seems to hold ever less weight.
