Virtual Reality enables a change of perspective: How can the use of Virtual and Augmented Reality in artistic non-fictional works contribute to a different access to crises, terror and fears? Documentary formats in Virtual or Augmented Reality create an immediacy beyond fiction which makes events almost tangible – and allow us to get a feel for what it can mean to spend everyday life in fear and terror.
We talk to Dani Ploeger (SMART FENCE) and Ricarda Saleh (PARIS TERROR) about their artistic approach to political events, about what is the driving force behind their projects and how immersive media such as Augmented and Virtual Reality offer new possibilities.
SMART FENCE is part of VRHAM! on top at VRHAM! Space from 2 pm – 9 pm. Free of charge. For PARIS TERROR you can buy an OPEN SPACE ticket for the VREXHIBITION from 2 pm – 5 pm or from 5.30 pm – 9 pm.
