Leading Theme

The Leading Theme of the B3: REALITIES

It takes human concept formation to create a reality in consciousness. As the pursuit of an unlimited extension of knowledge lies in the nature of man, ideas such as God, freedom, and soul came into being as absolute concepts which are formed by reason without any empirical basis. (After Immanuel Kant)


From Plato's allegory of the cave through Kant to Jean Baudrillard: in human history, man has constantly attempted to make comprehensible what reality means and to explain it. Reality as a relative or definitive explanatory variable of being in man's collective as well as individual perception is constantly being reinterpreted. So, there is not only one valid reality, but, rather, different forms of reality, hence realities.


"The pursuit of the extension of knowledge lies in the nature of man," says Kant. Coupled with this quest, there are many reasons for presenting new realities to one's consciousness. One of them is the flight from the reality that is determining the one own's being, and conversely, the desire to manipulate the consciousness of the individual and / or the collective through the creation of new realities.


Shadows (Plato), the image, the word or the moving image served and serve for the creation of new realities. At this present time, man can imagine himself being in supposedly real worlds above all thanks to the audiovisually revolutionised technology (VR, AR) and through the suggestion of 3-dimensionality.

Today, the vision presented by the film THE MATRIX in 1999 appears as a possible future scenario.

The people live there in a illusionary world called the Matrix. It is a computer programme written by machines for humans after the machines conquered humanity, developed a desire to expand and only need the humans now as the breeding ground for their own life and future development. The world is dull, dark and gloomy, and the desert has become reality.

The humans are attached to tubes and held trapped in pods. They don't know anything about their fate. They think that they are following a completely normal life in the Matrix where they feel suffering, pain, sorrow, but also fun, pleasure and joy and finally die at the end of their lives. But they don't have the slightest clue about their true destiny.


The question regarding the one reality determining one's consciousness and thus existence remains as important as ever


What is really real? Or in another way, how many realities are there and which one are we living in? These and other elementary questions are being addressed by the programme of the B3 Biennial of the Moving Image next years and will again be approaching its focus from a socio-political, artistic, philosophical, technological and economic perspective.
