The variety of virtual reality art is reflected in our VREXHIBITION! Discover the artistic experiences of international artists in the Main Program and the projects of up-and-coming Hamburg-based artists. Visit the Magenta VR-Lounge by our festival partner Telekom, grab an Oculus Go and drop into 360 degree worlds. Or would you like to take a look ahead? We invite you to our Interactive Playground with the latest technologies that may be exciting tools for artists in the future: just try it out, be curious, don’t be shy, and above all have fun!
VRHAM! Live is going to prove that Virtual Reality Art can be a shared experience, with performance-based VR art presented to small and large groups. Whether it’s the Live VR concert by English band collective MIRO SHOT, the Mixed Reality version of Shakespeare’s ROMEO AND JULIET by CyberRäuber, or LET’S VRHAM! TOGETHER, the festival’s first own production, with musicians improvising on live VR experiences – it’s the shared experience and the resulting exchange that counts.
If you would like to make yourself familiar with VR art first, the free program of VRHAM! is just the right place for you. Outside the two main halls the festival presents the Virtual Reality opera FRAGMENTE – EIN DIGITALER FREISCHÜTZ, for example. Last year’s VRHAMMY Award winner Dani Ploeger is presenting his latest work SMART FENCE, and VRHAM! is happening in the city centre as well: On Rathausmarkt you can discover the illustrations by Spanish artist MAGOZ via Augmented Reality. For those who want to dive even deeper, there’s the extensive discourse program with exciting keynotes, artist talks and discussion rounds in our VRHAM! Space.
