‘Hoax’ is another term for canard or false report describing something incorrect that is formed believable. They are exhibited through newspapers, television, radio, internet and other forms of social media. Without the use of these media and even technology, hoaxes would not be able to be spread and accepted. A hoax is used against the background of different intentions: to make people aware of something, as a joke or for a real purpose. Art hoaxes share a similar purpose. Some seem to be created solely to prove a certain group or movement incorrect while others seem to be created simply to force the public to question reality.
