"Are you FAUX/REAL "

Why do we humans care to believe more in a fantasy than the truth? Within the project Samir Duratovic and MAISON THE FAUX want to analyse the concepts of reality and fantasy. Analyse what escapism does to the value of reality and truth. The project will hint to the systems of religion, systems of media and overall systems of manipulating truth. They want to incorporate thoughts and ideas by philosophers that zoom in on the transformation of reality like Jean Baudrillard and reference old stories and fairytales like ''The Emperor’s New Clothes''. Aesthetically they want to search for the grey areas between what is perceived to be beautiful and ugly, as a parallel between truth and lies.
