PICS OR IT DIDN’T HAPPEN
PICS OR IT DIDN’T HAPPEN
Appropriation and decontextualization of images
in fake news spreading

           This publication is the second chapter of our research on the digital misinformation which started with “Fermignano—Greenville”, a critical project
part of “Famous men of the past and present times” exhibition held in Fermignano between December 2016 and January 2017. There we explored the relationship between Internet and the road to fame. As far as the web is able to create a celebrity out of a completely invented character, it looks even more simple to create and share loads of misleading informations.

           Oxford Dictionaries has elected “post-truth” as the word of the year 2016, officially declaring our entrance in an era where objective facts are less influential
in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.Starting from
the list of 50 Top Fake News of 2016 by Craig Silverman, News Media Editor of Buzz Feed, we underlined the visual component of each native article, and then composed just a partial compendium of the hoaxes’ proliferation.
