Symposium: Conspiracy Theories
On the 16th of May Animo is hosting the annual symposium. This year's theme will be : 'Conspiracy Theories: are they (un)believable?'. In collaboration with Kruispunt, Animo is hosting the symposium at BANK15. The event is open to everyone and entrance is free. More information about the speakers will be revealed on our Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1183675591768764/
Conspiracy theories have been part of our cultures and society for as long as humankind has existed. It is remarkable, however, that since the rise of the
Internet and social media the interest in and effects of these theories have changed, grown and spread widely.
Conspiracies are featured on social media, in newspapers and on television daily. Theories about the truth are held up by faithful believers, professional critics and internet-trolls. In our current media-lanscape these conspiracies are affected by filter bubbles and algorithms, which makes the question of 'who you can trust' even more complicated. In our symposium we will offer interesting perspectives on what the truth is, who decides what is true, and what you should believe in.
We understand that conspiracy theories are somewhat controversial, which is why we want to create space for an open and informative discussion, highlighting different perspectives on our main question: "How (un)believable is the truth?"

April is the month of philosophy with the theme: ‘All power to the imagination’ the famous slogan of the student revolt of 1968: now fifty years ago. With the film Manifesto we pay homage to art and to the versatile and divers actress Cate Blanchett. In thirteen changing characters, the actress declaims avant-garde like manifests. Which results in a manifesto of manifestos, with quotes of sixty art revolutionaries. Lively, inspiring, pompous, concerned, current, poetic, angry, passionate, theatrical, contradictory, humorous and elusive as the arts themselves. The film has an appropriate program and of course we will discuss the film afterwards with an academic and the audience, including philosopher Daan Keij (Filosophy café).
