The reopening of the exhibitions "Van Gogh - The Immersive Experience" at STATION-Berlin will take place on May 19, 2021. This exhibition is a completely newly conceived multimedia spectacle that presents the world-famous artworks of Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh (1853 - 1890) in a way never seen before.
The artist's paintings are enlarged several times with the help of elaborate light installations and projections and brought to life on the walls of the presentation rooms.
Masterful art meets state-of-the-art technology - a symbiosis that will carry Van Gogh's genius into a new age and make it unforgettable. After Paris, Brussels and Linz, the interactive art experience will now sweep the German capital from April 9, 2021 at STATION Berlin.
The multimedia light installation brings out the concentrated colorfulness of Van Gogh's works and makes art more tangible than ever before for the viewer in an immersive experience. In this unique production, visitors are immersed in Van Gogh's works and experience the virtual illusion as reality. The paintings are brought tangibly to life with the help of oversized projections and video animations combined with soulful melodies. In this way, no detail of the famous works of art remains hidden from the visitor.
Van Gogh's works such as the world-famous "Sunflowers", "The Night Café", "Starry Night", "The Potato Eaters" or the "Bedroom in Arles" can be experienced from a completely new perspective. The viewer finds himself in the middle of the paintings, he becomes part of the scenery, sinks into light and sound, the works of art interact with him.
In "Van Gogh - The Immersive Experience," visitors learn fascinating facts about the backgrounds and genesis of some of the world's most famous works of art. The exhibition not only shows over 500 works by Van Gogh, it also explains the life of the artist, who was born in 1853. Thus, his time in the monastery and his stay in Arles are just as much a part of the virtual discovery tour as the mysterious letters he wrote to his brother.
A 360-degree multimedia time travel through the history of one of the greatest geniuses of the past century!
