This week on Art Uncovered I'm joined by Andrew Shea. He's the director of a new film called POW: Portrait of Wally. The film tells the story of one family's efforts to recover a 1912 work by Egon Schiele, Portrait of Wally, that was stolen by the Nazis during World War II.

Curator Elizabeth Armstrong's current exhibition at the Minneapolis Institute of Art is all about this slippery slope between truth and fiction in the 21st century. Her show is called More/Real: Art In the Age of Truthiness. The show looks at how artists are responding to a world in which fabrications, fictions or blatant falsehoods are often accepted as truth without regard to logic or reason. A world where news and entertainment are interchangeable and our social relationships and even our wars are conducted in virtual reality.
