UNMASKED is the debut learning experience presented by The Cultural Index. The first of many to come, UNMASKED is an online exhibition exploring the supernatural power of the face in a technocentric world. Will avatars, facial recognition and deepfake technology lead to the damnation or salvation of identity? Think: An eerily life like 3D host, immersive narrative driven soundscapes, 3D artefacts and artworks explained in easily digestible content.
Each week your host lead you into a new reality exploring the fascinating relationship between our face and the world. Sign-up to get notified of each release.

UNMASKED is supported by the Stimuleringsfonds. Featuring works from the Design Museum Den Bosch, the Wereldculturen Collectie and 14 artists. Made in collaboration with XL Studios, Post Neon & Pim Boreel. Launch sponsored by Kees de Boekhouder.
