„Virtual Reality art transcends the boundaries of all conventional forms of art, because it focuses on the viewer and surrounds him or her with their own 360-degree world. We are proud to be able to show this art in Hamburg!“
Ulrich Schrauth, Artistic Director
VRHAM! (Virtual Reality & Arts Festival Hamburg) is Germany’s first international Festival for Virtual Reality Art. Established by Ulrich Schrauth in Hamburg in 2018, VRHAM! opens its doors for the second time, from 7 – 15 June 2019, in Hamburg’s Oberhafenquartier. Let’s discover and experience this exciting form of art!
Under this year’s motto “DIS:SOLUTION” we present a large selection of extraordinary Virtual Reality experiences and live performances by contemporary artists.
New: “VRHAM! Live” invites visitors to discover that Virtual Reality Art can be a shared experience, with performance-based VR art by some of the most exciting international artists presented to small and large groups. Whether it’s a live VR concert, a Mixed Reality dance perfomance, or a VR theatre play: Virtual Reality Art as a shared experience is even more thrilling!
For those who want to dive even deeper, there’s the extensive Discourse program with exciting keynotes, artist talks and discussion panels in our VRHAM! Space.
During the Opening ceremony of the festival our international jury will present the winners of this year’s VRHAMMY AWARDS. One focus will be the promotion of Hamburg’s emerging VR artists. The results of the two Residencies we awarded so Virtual Reality artists could work on their new project will also be presented on the opening weekend.
On the last day of the festival all visitor are invited to join the VRHAM!Bye Closing Party, where the winner of the People’s Choice award will be announced. Am letzten Tag des Festivals sind alle Besucher*innen herzlich zum Abschlussfest und zur Verleihung des Publikumspreises eingeladen. Come on over! We’re looking forward to welcoming you to VRHAM! 2019.
A big thank you to all partners, sponsors and supporters! Without you, VRHAM! would be just an idea, due to your help it is both a virtual and a truly real experience.
