Event description

Description

From fake meat to fake emotions, if faking it gets the job done, who cares? In both the natural world and human society, faking, mimicking and copying can be a reliable strategy for success. When the focus is on how things appear, a fake may be just as valuable as the real thing. But what about replicating taste, emotions, chemical signatures, facts and trademarks? Have patents, politics, and art given copying a bad name?

From biomimicry to forged documents, from scandals to substitutes, FAKE: THE REAL DEAL?, the new free exhibition at Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin, asks when authenticity is essential, when copying is cool, and what the boundary is between a fakery faux-pas and a really fantastic FAKE.

Join us for a real look at everything faux at our FAKE launch party. Nialler9 will be playing a savvy setlist of covers, and you'll have the opportunity to concoct the perfect social media snap and indulge in some food fakery from our café.
