Online info session for teachers - Fake (F)or Real: a History of forgery and falsification

Temporary exhibition at the House of European History running until 31st of January 2022.

The House of European History’s third temporary exhibition, places the concept of ‘’Fake’’ - one of the present day’s most widely discussed topics - as a common thread throughout history. This information session will provide you with ready-to-use exercises in order to successfully teach Media Literacy to students aged 12 to 18. You will be invited to play a Forgery Quiz hosted by the famous forger, Han Van Meegeren, and Explore, Practise & Reflect on disinformation and on your own Snap Judgement.

Along with the Fake (F)or Real exhibition, this session aims to raise awareness about how facts, techniques and emotions may be blended to influence our worldviews, in the past and present.


Don’t be a fake follower - join this online information session together with your colleagues!
