Virtual Reality

VR cinema will screen 360° films, their tone ranging from popularscience to strictly poetic or lyric, which use a documentary approach, animation or actors to depict both current stories and topics and historical insights. You can immerse yourself into the depths of oceans and space, but also into a fl eeting space painted in watercolors or a spirited changing animation portraying the fi ght of the feminist movement at the beginning of the 20th century, hear both beautiful and thrilling stories from all corners of the world and fl y through fragments of cities, memories or culturally-distant rituals. The installations allow you to explore worlds which embrace the viewer›s movement and allow them to infl uence what they discover and perceive.
