This year, DOK Leipzig – International Leipzig Festival for Documentary and Animated Film takes place October 8 to 15. Every year during the festival week, the extended reality exhibition DOK Neuland invites visitors to experience unexpected stories in virtual spaces.
Since 2015, DOK Neuland has provided an exhibition platform for the art of interactive and immersive works. This experience is made possible by technologically advanced new media such as virtual reality, augmented reality or 360° films, all with bold narratives that tap into the revolutionary potential that unfolds when art and technology collide. By taking advantage of the possibilities presented by new media, selected artists break with familiar story lines, expand the boundaries of our reality and, together with visitors, explore the interaction between humans and machines to create new realms of experience.
