The Visual Worlds Collide symposium is on at Basel’s HeK (House of Electronic Arts Basel) on March 3.
Do they change established models of presentation and transmission of art? Is the art world on the verge of a quantum leap?
A variety of events dedicated to virtual experience and its influence on our perception of art is programmed, including a workshop by media artist Jörg Brinkmann, an exhibition by Tina Sauerländer, and a talk on Beta Manifest by Karoline Pfeiffer and Thea Dymke. There will also be a symposium, Visual Worlds Collide – Potentials and Impacts of Virtual Reality on the Art Market, looking at the way virtual exhibition spaces “open up new forms of encounter, exchange, global networking.”
Moderated by Kristian Jarmuschek and Eleonora Frolov, speakers will include HeK director Sabine Himmelsbach, DialogData IT-expert Thomas Mödl, galerist Priska Pasquer, Digital Art History Prof. Hubertus Kohle and Prof. Dr. Cheryce von Xylander.
