FakeShop is a collaborative group founded and led by the New York artist Jeff Gompertz in 1997. One of its principal characteristics is the mobility of its members according to the piece to be produced. Its activity is centred on technological performances that question and project human reality before technological society, a cyberorganized being observed and conditioned by, and subject to developments derived from the age of computation from a dystopian perspective.
Due to the fact that the work of FakeShop is essentially based on installations and complex performances, its work as artefact is limited.
