Our use and understanding of notions such as truth and reality in recent years have been heavily challenged. “White Lies”, “Fake News” and “Alternative Facts” are catch phrases The notion of truth needs to be reconsidered within journalism, digital humanities, computer science, engineering, art and design practices. What are the tools and technologies capable of, that we are building, using and updating, and therefore constantly reaffirming? Do we really know? Do we need to know? The 4th edition of the H&D Summer Academy (HDSA2018) was given the title: Fake it! Fake them! Fake you! Fake us!... H&D and calls for taking truth into own hands.

Hackers & Designers kicks off the Summer Academy workshop program by inviting hackers/designers/makers/artists to come together to establish a critical perspective on truth as such, and to work with multiple truths.
