Extended Reality: DOK Neuland

Every year during the festival week, our extended reality exhibition DOK Neuland invites visitors to experience unexpected stories in virtual spaces. We are now calling for creative immersive works for this year’s DOK Neuland edition – submit by 29 June!

About DOK Neuland

Since 2015, DOK Neuland has provided an exhibition platform for the art of interactive and immersive works. Each year we invite our audience to discover around 10 international pieces here.

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.

Now accepting XR submissions

The Call for XR works is now open! We look forward to receiving your creative immersive submissions for DOK Neuland, taking place during DOK Leipzig 2023 (8–15 October).

What are we looking for?

Whether it’s virtual reality, augmented reality, media or web-based art, participatory film, 360° film, sound installation, or entirely new formats, show us what you've been working on over the past few months and submit your work by June 29.

There is no entry fee or requirement for premiere status to be eligible for DOK Neuland.

How to submit?

You can submit directly via our website. Please login to your myDOK account or register for a new account if you haven’t got one until now. Once you are logged in, you can access the entry form.

Read more about the requirements, submission and selection process in the XR submission guidelines.

How do we exhibit the works?

In close cooperation with the artists we design a room installation that provides both an ample space for each individual work and an experience in and of itself. Each exhibition dares to look into the future and asks how our conventions and habits might change. We also ponder the questions of which conditions are best for experiencing new media and which spaces can do justice to these innovative works.
