The exhibition #fuckreality opens doors to virtual worlds.
The image is omnipresent: entranced people staring at displays on their televisions, smartphones, tablets, or computers.
The launch into a new era of virtuality is in full swing, and innovations in virtual reality technologies are pushing forward in great strides.
Featuring the work of over 20 artists, #fuckreality focuses on a topic that the art world often neglects because it is stigmatised by associations with Hollywood productions and the globalised taste of the masses.
Is it even possible to counter the commercial interests of Google & Co and reveal new modes of perception?
#fuckreality presents artistic positions that explore and question the promise of the digital world.
Published on the occasion of the exhibition, #fuckreality at Kunstraum Niederoesterreich, Vienna (4 October – 17 November 2018).
