Full immersion! The exhibition #fuckreality opens doors to virtual worlds.
The image is omnipresent: Entranced people staring at displays on their televisions, smartphones, tablets, or computers. The launch into a new era of virtuality is in full swing, and innovations in virtual reality technologies are pushing forward in great strides. In the exhibition #fuckreality at the Kunstraum Niederoesterreich focuses on a topic that the art world often ne-glects because it is stigmatised by associations with Hollywood productions and the globalised taste of the masses. Is it even possible to counter the commercial interests of Google & Co and reveal new modes of perception?

#fuckreality presents artistic positions that explore and ques-tion the promises of the digital world. Alexandra Schantl, Martin Kusch, and Ruth Schnell have curated this exhibition which features the work of artists who graduated from or teach at the De-partment of Digital Art at the University of Applied Arts Vienna.
