Online Experiment: Virtual Exhibitions

There’s a new feature on Virtual Exhibitions.

This initiates an experiment, intended to add to’s possibilities, as well as to test the potential of the internet. The presentations are dedicated to artists working on ARTitecture | art and architecture

Virtual Exhibitions tap the potential of the www: not only are the exhibited works accessible with out geographic and temporal limits, but they are furthermore available permanently – while “classical” exhibitions are subject to limited space and time. Within these virtual exhibition spaces, striking encounters are possible which would not happen just like that in reality – providing you with food for thought, discoveries and surprises!

The premiere is a Virtual Exhibition presenting works by German photographer Cathrin Schulz: „Last Call“ about Berlin city airport Tempelhof

The opening show is: „Getting physical STIER | ZEMKE | VOLIC“.
