Bebe Blanco Agterberg (b.1995) is a visual storyteller based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. She examines history and the reliability of the image in the post- truth era, which forms a gray area where fact and fiction live close to each other. This is the area whereAgterberg positions herself.
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, which is based on emotions that tries to lure its audience into believing what is created in front of them.
