Authenticity ? Observations and Artistic Strategies in the Post-Digital Age
The everyday connotations of the original, the real, sincere, valid, historical, or deep are well-known, and the opposite of the authentic may then be the superficial, false, not-what-it-seems, or just new. Nonetheless 'the real thing' presents us with some productive ambiguities that create a point of departure for an analysis and a better understanding of the changes in the post-digital society. To unfold the nuances of the concept of contemporary authenticity this book aims to bring together different thinkers to reflect on the meaning of the authentic now.
