Bebe Blanco Agterberg examines history and the reliability of the image in the post-truth era, which forms a grey area where fact and fiction live close to each other. The projects she makes explore the relationship between politics, media and citizens: how these three opponents feed each other, need each other, but also exist in a constant power struggle. Her visual language is based on what she sees in the media, and she is specifically interested in what has been manipulated. Agterberg uses artificial light in order to give a cinematic feeling to the work and to try to lure its audience into believing what is created in front of them. In her work she takes on the role of a director, who investigates what truth means in modern times.
