Perception is Reality

The invited artists investigate the conditions of human perception in relation to technically constructed realities. The point of departure is a selection of art works, analogue and digital, as well as virtual reality applications drawn from the fields of contemporary art and the sciences. The spatial juxtaposition of the works functions as a thought experiment about the intellectual, emotional and aesthetic effects of artificial images.

»Perception is Reality« examines which conditions structure virtual reality and how these conditions influence individuals, their perceptions, their ideas of the world, and consequently society as a whole. Another central topic to be addressed in the exhibition at Frankfurter Kunstverein is the significance of Virtual Reality technology for identity formation and human psychological development.
