VRHAM! RELAUNCHES IN 2024!
that’s why we’re taking a creative pause this year…
Dear visitors, dear artists, dear friends – dear VRHAMily!
In the last five turbulent festival years since our foundation in 2018, we have changed every year, always reinventing and evolving. Our festival has never looked the same, always embracing the latest artistic trends, adapting to global developments and challenges…
Now we want to give the VRHAM! Festival a new lease of life and are taking a creative break this year! We will revise the VRHAM! concept, taking into account the current changes in the art and media landscape, so that it continues to meet the spirit of the times and also fulfils the needs and demands of the artists and our audience in the future.
VRHAM! Initiator and curator Ulrich Schrauth: “VRHAM! always stood for innovation, creativity and the desire to experiment. After five extremely successful festival editions, it is now time to pause for a moment and open our eyes: How has our society evolved? How has digitalization shaped us in recent years? What artistic and technological possibilities are emerging? We are already looking forward to presenting a new festival experience in 2024 and, as usual, bringing the most innovative and exciting new artists to Hamburg.“
The development process of the VRHAM! Festival is supported by the Fonds Soziokultur from the programme of the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media “NEUSTART KULTUR”.
THAT WAS VRHAM! 2022
with ULTRAMARIN – AN IMMERSIVE EXHIBITION
With the arrival of the cold season, it is time to take a look back: What a fantastic, successful year! With the immersive exhibition “ULTRAMARIN” VRHAM! went on tour for the first time: After the first stop at the beginning of June at the Tom Reichstein Gallery in Hamburg, it went to the art city of Venice at the beginning of September.
In total, more than 1,200 visitors have already been able to experience “ULTRAMARIN – An Immersive Exhibition” live this year. They immersed themselves in the exhibition theme of water and went into the deep, virtual blue through immersive artworks by the world’s most renowned artists.
You can get a visual impression here in our recap trailers and in the image gallery.
But before we go into hibernation, we don’t want to deprive you of the next highlight at the end of the year: Welcome to Miami!
In cooperation with the Filmgate VR Festival, which takes place in the context of the world-famous art fair Art Basel Miami and this year also cooperates for the first time with the Global Immersive Summit of the VR/AR Association, we will show an excerpt of ULTRAMARIN in a very special setting from December 2 – 6, 2022 in Miami…
