“There may be more beautiful times, but this one is ours.”
For our international guests who can’t visit the DOK Neuland exhibition, the DOK Exchange keynotes give you the opportunity to connect with cutting-edge storytellers, artists, and content creators.
Pre-pandemic life exposed an out-of-control acceleration and we seem to suffer from a collective burnout. The forced deceleration of the lockdowns took a toll and the way we encounter each other has been massively transformed.
Nevertheless, we will transfer the uplifting spirit of DOK Exchange into a collectively shared safe space from our homes. The one-day community-building event focuses once again on learning from each other, a space to explore the freshest views and ideas of XR storytelling. Apart from imaginary competition, we aim to put into perspective the huge and endless potential of new technology and explore our liability towards society, users and ourselves.
Closed works in progress sessions will also be accessible for registered guests.
When: Thursday 29 October 2020, 11:00 – 13:30
Access: Prior registration required
