Open Call for VRHAM – VR Residency and Artwork

News
February 2019

VRHAM! is Germany’s first artistic Virtual Reality-Festival.

From 7 to 15 June 2019 it will once more take place at Hamburg’s Oberhafenquartier. Every year we offer an international platform for promoting and presenting Virtual Reality art. Nationally and internationally acclaimed VR artists of all genres as well as up-and-coming talents show Virtual Reality art, 360° films and participative, installative and performative formats at the second edition of VRHAM! the artistic presentation is complemented by a varied discourse program.

VRHAM! is looking for the most outstanding and innovative international VR experiences. Whether interactive works, 360° films or installations in Virtual, Augmented or Mixed Reality: We are interested in unusual artistic positions! The theme of this year’s festival is “DIS:SOLUTION“. We are looking for artists who find their own approach to the concepts of dis:solution, de:limitation etc. with their works. Where do we cross borders, where do they blur? Whether your focus is on media, material, political, physical or associative aspects: How do the artistic considerations of your VR experience correspond to our motto “DIS:SOLUTION”?

This year’s Open Call covers three categories:

VRHAM! MAIN PROGRAM:
Artistic VR/AR/XR works presented in specially designed spaces.

HAMBURG EMERGING ARTISTS:
We are presenting Hamburg’s young VR artists to an international audience.

VRHAM! RESIDENCIES:
Two creative teams of up to three persons each can (further) develop innovative works in the field of Virtual Reality art and 360° film, accompanied by renowned international mentors. The residencies will take place directly in advance of this year’s festival so presentation of the works can be integrated into the opening weekend of VRHAM! 2019.

Deadline: 3 March, 2019
