The Glass Room: Misinformation Edition, the exhibition, is developed by Tactical Tech, an international NGO that “engages with citizens and civil-society organisations to explore and mitigate the impacts of technology on society.”
Consisting of display boards, interactive apps and animations hosted in public or private community spaces, the exhibit tackles questions like: ‘How do we know if a picture, tweet or video is genuine or truthful? And what can we do if we can’t be sure?’
Since 2016, The Glass Room has run award-winning exhibitions in Berlin, London, New York and San Francisco, as well as a portable edition of the exhibition which has been hosted in 40 countries worldwide and seen by over 120,000 people.
The Misinformation Edition, released this year, is now scheduled to appear in schools and public libraries across New Zealand in two-week periods over the next six months, with accompanying workshops for teachers and librarians.
