Workshop "Real photos & fake photos: how to distinguish?"

Workshop "Real photos & fake photos: how to distinguish?"
25

April 2021

We live in a world of photos, we share them every day and post them on social media. Sometimes we forward something without even considering whether it is a real photo or a fake one. Every photo at all training contains information about the camera it was taken with and even about the location. How do we analyse photos? What can we learn about the photo and its author? What services and methods are provided to verify the authenticity of an image or its caption? We will discuss this at our project's workshop, which will take place on 25 April as part of the Data CTRL Centre exhibition at the Educational Centre of the Moscow Museum of Modern Art.

Participants in the workshop will also be able to look at themselves from the outside and discover what kind of digital footprint they leave on the internet. Participants aged 12-17 are welcome to attend. 

Moderator Irina Khodyreva is an expert trainer of the project, media producer, curator of educational projects of the Big Festival of Cartoons and the open-air animation festival ''Insomnia'', coordinator of the multimedia content of the Cryptography Museum.

The Data CTRL Centre is an online and offline exhibition about media literacy and data protection on the internet. Implemented by the Goethe-Institut in cooperation with the project "The Earth Is Flat - How to Read Media? Data CTRL Centre is part of the Experimental Music and Art (EMA) Expo 2021. The workshop will be part of the museum's public programme "Are we building a new world together?", where invited artists and experts will reflect on the relationship with technology and address the dreams, problems, utopias and fears associated with the state of transition into a "new world" where technology is inseparable from society and the everyday life of people.
