Exhibition RESONANT REALITIES

See the VR Art Exhibition "Resonant Realities" - from 16.04. - 04.07.2021 at the Haus am Lützowplatz in Berlin. The exhibition presents the works of the VR ART PRIZE grant recipients, Banz & Bowinkel, Evelyn Bencicova, Patricia Detmering, Armin Keplinger and Lauren Moffatt.

 

The artists create sculptures and paintings that defy the laws of physics and feature artificial intelligence as their protagonists. Their works reflect social dynamics and societal changes brought about by new technologies. Curated by VR art expert and artistic director Tina Sauerlaender, the exhibition embeds VR artworks in site-specific installations, thereby placing virtual reality into dialogue with physical space.

 

Each individual perceives the world through different lenses. Our personal views determine our impressions of our surroundings. Communication and exchange enable the possibility of encountering and understanding other outlooks. This act can be understood as a resonance of various realities. By putting one's own perspective in relation to another’s, it is possible to expand our own. In the best case, this process may create an open and empathetic coexistence within our society.

 

In the exhibition space, we interact with virtual reality artworks that here form a digital resonance of the physical world. We encounter virtual beings, observe interpersonal exchanges, and witness arrangements among artificial intelligence. The digital works resonate in the exhibition space in corresponding site-specific installations. The contrast between the physical and computer-generated worlds reveals the divergent parameters that apply to each location. Depending on the environment and one’s own viewpoint, the objects appear in variants and communication follows a different set of rules.

 

The artistic works reveal a deeper understanding of the digital realm and present technology as a human product which is inextricably linked to our values and norms. Our engagement with these works unlocks the possibility of questioning our relationship to culture, to our fellow human beings, and to the machines and technologies that surround us. This process consequently prompts a reexamination of our thoughts and actions.

 

To visit the exhibition, please book an admission time in advance. The Haus am Lützowplatz is open daily from 11 am - 6 pm. Admission is free.
