Newsroom and Fake Newsroom

In 1983, Larry Sultan and Mike Mandel held the exhibition Newsroom at the Berkeley Art Museum. The installation consisted of electronic news and wire service machines from Associated Press and United Press International, which together established a mock newsroom. They collected, sorted, and reconfigured incoming news imagery to subvert mass media channels and explore shifts in photographic meaning. In Fake Newsroom, a recreation currently taking place at Minnesota Street Project, artists Jason Fulford, Jim Goldberg, and Dru Donovan serve as guest editors using images from the Associated Press feed to generate a daily edition online and within the exhibition space.
