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

Opening: Friday, October 6, 2017 at 7pm

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, and Toast among others

Curator: Franziska Nori

The exhibition examines the conditions of human perception in relation to constructed works. As one among the first the Frankfurter Kunstverein integrates Virtual Reality in an exhibition of contemporary art. There will be shown a selection of art works, analogue and digital, as well as virtual reality applications, conceptual photogra- phy, innovative games, and applications from the field of forensics. The spatial juxtaposition of the works functions as a thought experiment about the emotional effects of artificial images.
