Worlding Worlds has been extended! Weightless Bricks Act II: Collaboration can now be experienced at MU Artspace until 1. August 2020. The exhibition curated by Angelique Spaninks presents various imaginary worldviews, scenarios and storylines ranging from films, animations, installations to interactive VR experiences.
MU Artspace Eindhoven just opened its doors, virtually!
Soft Bodies’ latest co-op MR installation ‘Weightless Collaboration’ is now displayed online, as part of the amazing exhibition ‘Worlding Worlds’ curated by Angelique Spaninks:
“While the corona virus is creating a new reality around us, MU has found a way to virtually lead you into an array of alternative worlds. Especially now, imaginary worlds can be a relief. But the queer, utopian, dystopian, germinating, irreconcilable worlds that MU discloses online as Worlding Worlds at mu.nl, offer more than just distraction. In a choir of critical and upbeat voices, thirteen artists and designers question dominant views, opposing them with unexpected possibilities and creating the space that can be hard to find in society as we know it.”
