Translation of abstract (English)

The invention of movable print provided early modern forgers with a particularly seductive medium: it gave them access to unprecedented numbers of readers and offered new strategies, textual as well as visual, to seduce these readers into believing their printed lies. As a result, the early modern world found itself imposed on by a multitude of forged books, ranging from fabricated travel accounts to faked classical texts and from simple hoaxes to wholly invented national histories. This exhibition presents a small selection of these books as well as the books that attacked, defended and appropriated them. Together these works offer an introduction to the highly complex game of seduction between forged books, crooks and readers in the 17th and 18th century and how the medium of print affected all three players.
