Cadavre exquis

The exhibition brings together individual contributions from artists who have chosen the medium of virtual reality as a new means of expression, including Marina Abramović, Olafur Eliasson, Antony Gormley, Paul McCarthy and Laurie Anderson.

VR Cinema: InnerFlood

VR Cinema invites film buffs and art lovers to delve into the immersive worlds of artists Anish Kapoor, Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg, Jakob Kudsk Steensen, and Mali Arun through four short films.


This installation by Jay Crocker (aka. JOYFULTALK) is a set of 16 music box cells - a small mechanical orchestra performing compositions of an infinitely-changing environment.
