Marres Currents # 5: I spy, I spy, a little lie is the fifth episode of the annual exhibition series titled Marres Currents. With this series, Marres presents recently graduated artists from art academies in the Southern Netherlands, Belgium, and Western Germany. In doing so, Marres provides a platform for emerging artists and curators, and contributes to an international infrastructure for talent development.

We ask: is it still possible to protect the truth in our contemporary democratic society? And, for that matter, has it ever been possible?
