Perception is Reality. On the Construction of Reality and Virtual Worlds

Opening: Friday, October 6, 2017 at 7 pm

Participating artists: Thomas Demand, Alicja Kwade, Marnix de Nijs, Hans Op de Beeck, David O’Reilly, Manuel Roßner, Bayerisches Landeskriminalamt, Christin Marczinzik & Thi Binh Minh Nguyen, Toast a.o.
Curated by: Franziska Nori

The exhibition will examine the relationship between factual realities, their construction and human perception. Point of departure is the medium of Virtual Reality and the interrogation of its impact on individuals, their perception and notion of world, and consequently on society as a whole.

On view will be a selection of analogue and digital artworks, as well as scientific applications resorting to virtual reality. The spatial juxtaposition produces a thought experiment on both the affinities of real and imaginary worlds and the ways in which we tend to visualise them.
