THE DIGITAL RENAISSANCE OF CONSPIRACY THEORIES In the age of social media and globalization, people seem to believe in all kinds of conspiracy theories, from chemtrails to secret terror armies and evil organizations that rule us from the shadows. Why is the modern human being so willing to believe in these stories? Who really profits from spreading them? “World Domination” (German title: "Die Weltherrschaft") is a coproduction between ORF, ARTE, BR, SRF, BMB, Junge Römer and Metafilm. The TV documentary (broadcast in September 2017) and the corresponding online project aim to answer these questions and present to the audience some ways to identify fake news in a wide sea of (mostly digital) information and how to protect oneself from hate- and fearmongering. The whole project - across TV, web and social media - is available in three languages: German, English and French.
