The Met exhibition After Photoshop: Manipulated Photography in the Digital Age on view through May 27, 2013, features work by artists who have used digital technology to alter the camera image from the 1980s to the present. Join Margaret Sullivan to examine the risks and dangers of manipulation of fact facing journalism today in the era of digital and social media. How can the news organizations of today—and the future—remain fast, accurate and authoritative in a social media world changing the very definition and shape of journalism and news? And what are the larger repercussions for public debate on today's essential political and social questions when the pace and accuracy (or inaccuracy) of social media pose ever-shifting challenges to civic life?
This lecture is supported by the Mrs. Joseph H. King Fund.
