“Estonia has reached a point of what we call media literacy 2.0: the question is no longer about necessary skills, knowledge and resources to have a more resilient society, rather the question is how to achieve trickle-down knowledge hierarchies or to put it more simply how do we make information disorders everyone’s business in society,” claims media researcher Maia Klaassen.
The exhibition “Fake ≠ Fact Info Lab” on the other hand is based on the materials from Swedish Museum of Work, which in turn originates from material by the Swedish Media Council. The Travelling Democracy Lab was first produced in 2018 and has toured throughout Sweden with the aim to strengthen the ability of students and young adults to independently assess the credibility and ideological starting point of various sources.
Now it is available in Tartu, till the end of November 2022.
