„Turmoil“ by Tanaz Modabber in collaboration with Jeffrey Bossin
AR Open is an Augmented Reality (AR) exhibition in the Great Tiergarten in Berlin. All artworks can be seen on site via smartphone or tablet. The admission is free.
The exhibition follows AR Open Baghdad, which opened in November 2021 at Al-Zawraa Park. The new exhibition in Berlin takes place in a park again and invites the public for a walk through its historic gardens.
Tiergarten is Berlins central park surrounded by major institutions as the Reichstag, the Chancellery, the Bellevue Palace and dozens of embassies and corporate headquarters. On the intersection of global interests, the park is a place of reflection and inspiration for citizens, politicians and artists and a common playground for ideas. The traces of history are visible and fascinating too, as animals and the changeable season complement the exhibition.
Nature, history and the immediate political environment of the Great Tiergarten shape the character of most of the works in the show that merge the historical sculpture park with new digital works and current events. Central role in this AR exhibition are playing the viewers, who can expand the project through their own photos and videos beyond the artistic intention.
AR Open explores the potential of augmented reality for social and cultural interaction. On view are only new productions, supplemented by works of colleagues from the Tarkib collective Baghdad and Pixelated Realities Odessa.
The exhibition is organized by Emcue e.V., Arpha and Studio Tiergarten. AR Open Berlin is part of the Draussenstadt initiative, funded by the Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Europe and the Foundation for Cultural Education and Cultural Advice.
AR Open started in 2018 as an educational experiment at the Beuth College in Berlin and was further developed by Arpha as a cultural program for augmented reality in cooperation with Urbane Künste Ruhr, Goethe Institute and GIZ Bonn.
No apps are required. This is a web-based project viewed via smartphone or tablet with AR support (2017 or newer) using mobile data. To see the exhibition please follow the AR markers on the map where you can activate the artworks.
