On its fifth anniversary, Germany's first artistic Virtual Reality Festival VRHAM! presents ULTRAMARIN - An Immersive Exhibition in a traveling exhibition. After the German premiere on June 2 and 3 in Hamburg, an international ensemble of artists headed by curator Ulrich Schrauth will travel to Venice in the context of the Venice Film Festival and the Venice Art Biennale: from September 1 - 8, established and new works will be presented to an international audience.
"After the positive response, both from visitors in Hamburg and from our partners, we are very pleased to present ULTRAMARIN in the art metropolis of Venice. There is probably no other place where the curatorial engagement with water finds such metaphorical depth as in the city of lagoons. As artistic director, it is important for me to shine a spotlight on water as an important resource through immersive art. We want to provide visitors with novel experiences through the use of innovative technologies. We are excited to see how the international audience reacts to the immersive works of our artists and hope for numerous visitors and new contacts beyond national borders," says Ulrich Schrauth, Artistic Director of VRHAM!
In Venice, visitors will experience works in Virtual and Augmented Technology, Mixed Media and Projection Mapping.
