IN PRODUCTION: PARALLEL WORLDS. WHAT IS STILL REAL? Friday, 13 January 2023, ZDF aspekte

A “truth”, a “reality” has not existed for a long time. If there ever was one. Putin, vaccination deniers, Mark Zuckerberg and his Metaverse – since digitalisation, it’s easier than ever to build new worlds, find approval and confirmation for one’s own worldview and simply block out the rest. But what are the consequences for our lives when reality feels increasingly surreal? When one can no longer agree on and rely on truths, values and norms? What does this mean for togetherness in the global community? And can culture help us to successfully counter this development? Written and directed by Frauke Schlieckau. A Bottega Berlin production for ZDF aspekte. 43 min.
