The Archive of the Institute of Falsification (2016)

The Institute for Falsification/Thari Jungen (IFF) opened its doors to present selected fakes from its archive. Artefacts of all kinds had been faked in Los Angeles and Hamburg as part of the Institute’s operations. The IFF invited citizens and non-citizens to its archive to discuss the legitimacy and value of knowledge produced through falsified products. Through the process of falsification, the Institute had researched how migration is regulated, how exclusion works, which boundaries should be pushed and how doors could be opened.
