In the hyperreality, nothing is false nor true. It is a beautiful apparatus that was created to “remember” the fiction of something real that never existed.
Hence, hyperreality protects us from the consensus reality of the previous generations, which has been banned here. Influencers create identities and tell stories, inviting countless people to become part of these realities. They are not sharing news. They are making news. The hyperreality created on social media platforms is so powerful that their content and emotions are translated into physical reality.
But there are dangers to this: People can view and accept hyperreal images as models for their own reality, even though the images do not necessarily represent real people. Our own bodies are actually left behind only in the non-mediatized niches of the invisible. With these bodies, however, one does not gain access to the virtual worlds of the metaverses of the large media corporations. In their hyperrealities, the under- and overwhelming game of confusion rules. It is no longer clear exactly which fakes are supposed to be real. AI accounts act as individual personalities with artificial social circles and self-programming preferences and consequently impact trends and the process of political opinion formation.
But the entertainment industry disguises the fake because revealing it could lead to a loss of trust. True, hyperreality is the inability of consciousness to recognize reality. Nevertheless, the implosion of the medium and the real need not lead to a total loss of control (all right, sometimes losing control is exactly what we want). Let’s consciously enter the hyperreal nebula and let us consciously desire the total fake and make its creation visible. It’s about actively crafting a false reality that’s meant to be consumed as real. It is a GEGEN space. Let’s turn the dance floor into a perversion of reality and into a space that knowingly includes parts of our consensus reality while going far beyond it. An otherworldly reality in which gender and body norms are left behind and that at the same time shows traces of imperfection and vulnerability. Let’s build our own collective hyperreality.
HYPERREAL, FAKE, EXAGGERATED, UNREALISTIC, FABULOUS, EXALTED, SUPERFETISHIZED. READ CAREFULLY THE CONCEPT AND SHOW US YOUR HYPERREALITY AT ITS BEST. A RIGID SELECTION WILL BE ENFORCED ON THIS BASIS. NO CASUAL WEAR.
