Florian Toperngpong / Honest Fakes and Imaginary Archives

Florian Toperngpong, former Fabricante, on 3 April at 11:00 CEST will be at Fabrica for a conference open to the public titled “Honest Fakes and Imaginary Archives”.

Florian Toperngpong studied graphic design and subsequently received a Fabrica grant for visual communication and creative writing in Italy.
The freelance graphic artist is an associate member of Club of Rome‘s Think Tank 30.
He is also a lecturer at the Academy of Design in Regensburg.
His most recent book was published in 2019 in Germany.
He lives with his family in Regensburg.

Florian Toperngpong will be presenting his books, exhibitions and performances as a conceptual artist. His work uses fakes and the archive as a medium to pose the question, what we perceive as reality and what is real anyway. In addition, his projects provide playful, artistic answers to contemporary questions of coexistence.

“The fake differs from the original in that it looks more genuine.”
Ernst Bloch

Toperngpong’s lecture is part of the “Archaism” residency program curated by Carlos Casas.
