VR in Österreich: Kunst & Digitalisierung – Film & Talk Virtual Reality Check

  • , MAK – Museum für angewandte Kunst Vortragssaal 90 min Admission free

Digitization and the digital revolution are currently major topics on a variety of levels. But what are the possibilities and opportunities digitization has to offer the art world specifically? The panel discussion explores this question by taking a close look at Virtual Reality: What are the basic conditions in Austria for art in the digital world, and what are the visions and strategies of the individual panel participants? And how can cultural heritage and current art-making best be dovetailed with the digital offensive in Austria? (sm/de)
