Contemporary art contains numerous often-used ‘mantras’. One of them is the notion of encouraging subjective stories, discourses and perceptions of reality instead of pursuing a single truth or a grand narrative. However, how does this maxim work in the everyday and in the field of contemporary art, formed by political systems, moral codes and new technologies? This lecture will provide an overview of a variety of different social contexts, to all of which questions of ‘illegal realities’ are currently immensely relevant, including the discourses of virutal reality and mental health, whilst also presenting the artistic strategies employed by the new generation of artists in which fake news or the principles of alternative realities cut across the inner structures of a work of art and become tools in the further processes of communication and PR.
