FICTION, FALLACY AND FAKE NEWS Dr Geri Parlby Wednesday 11 March 2020

Fake News has been around since the time of the Egyptian pharaohs and art has always been one of its favourite media. In this study day, we will be uncovering the subtle art of spin and propaganda in art through the ages, from Ancient Mesopotamia and Archaic Egypt to Nazi Germany. Every picture tells a story, whether it is true or not is an entirely different matter. All very topical given the climate in which we live...

Tickets costs £30 and include coffee on arrival, a light lunch with wine or soft drinks. These are available for sale at each meeting or from anne.bevan6@gmail.com

The day starts at 10.00am with coffee and is followed by two lectures. After the lunch break we have one further lecture and the day should end around 2.45pm.
