Virtual Reality and Art Festival
June 7 – 17, 2018
VRHAM! Is Germany’s first artistic Virtual Reality festival. In 2018 the festival presented sixteen VR experiences by international artists. The main program focused on Belonging, Safety, Migration and Nomadism, presenting the public with seven different perspectives on the most pressing issues of our times.
Khora Contemporary presented Nikita Shalenny’s 2018 work The Bridge. The work arises from the artist’s interest in the bridge as a starting point for imagining a way of escaping the ongoing crisis in the land where he resides. In the light of the current refugee crisis the infinite bridge seems like a symptom of our times or a cure for an escape attempt.
