Truly spiritual or cheesy?
Starting from the observation that the contemporary image culture is craving for sincerity, Anna Heuer Hansen and Alice Van der Wielen investigate the tension and confusion that exists between what is sincere and what is not. What makes one thing fake and another one authentic? What if the distinction between real and unreal, authentic and fake, which is the base of our value system, disappears?
