Parallel Realities: Virtual van de Velde

The Kunstsammlungen Chemnitz are currently developing a virtual offer for the Henry van de Velde Museum in the Villa Esche. In an innovative mediation format, funded by the German Federal Cultural Foundation as part of the dive in funding programme, a completely new experience is being created under the heading Parallel Realities: Virtual van de Velde, so that the Villa Esche becomes a unique Artwork that can be experienced by new target groups. Contemporary history as well as individual and personal stories regarding the place will be experienced through augmented reality and interactive, partly immersive formats. The project will not only be created for, but also with, teenagers.
