With the market launch of technologies suitable for the masses, Virtual Reality experiences a first time large-scale popularity as artistic medium. By means of a headset, the viewer enters a three-dimensional world devoid of the limiting edges of a screen, projection sheet or room. The Unframed World is the first extensive presentation of artistic exploration of the VR medium at the HeK (House of Electronic Arts Basel). The international group exhibit shows works, which bind the virtual environment together with the physical exhibition space.

PECHA KUCHA ART NIGHT: Art in the Age of Earthquakes ?!

For the 3rd time, peer to space and Performing Encounters organize the PECHA KUCHA ART NIGHT that will take place at Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin on November 6, 2016, at 4 pm.  

ART in the AGE of EARTHQUAKES ?!

Die Euphorie über die Möglichkeiten des Internet und der Share Economy hat sich in eine allgemeine Skepsis verwandelt. Haben Erschütterungen wie die Enthüllungen Edward Snowdens auch der Aufbruchstimmung in der Kunstwelt zugesetzt? Oder haben deren Akteure das Potential des Internets noch gar nicht erkannt? Wie gehen sie mit der analog-digitalen Hybridität um? Wie kreieren und kommunizieren sie Kunst im virtuellen Zeitalter? Was sind Chancen und Risiken für Künstler, Galeristen oder Museen? Welche Bilder sind heute wichtig und wie funktionieren sie? Was bedeutet der digitale Wandel für die Kunst – und im Besonderen für das Bild?
