DISKURS

VR, we need to talk!

What do we change with Virtual Realtiy? And how is the new dimension changing us? Our discourse program, consisting of four sections, looks into these questions: VR & Society deals with the new technology’s impact on society. VR & Art is debating the change in artistic practice and the situation of the self in the virtual space. VR & Promoting Literature investigates new incentives for sparking young people’s interest in literature. And for the category Conference & Workshops we are pleased to announce cooperations with Hamburg Kreativ Gesellschaft and a virtual conference hosted by Filmförderung Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein.
