FOR REAL 2010 - 28 Utopian Projections in Public Space from Viewmaster Foundation on Vimeo.

Bus trip to Hasselt

From 1 to 31 October, Viewmaster Foundation presents the exhibition For Real in the public spaces of the cities of Maastricht (the Netherlands) and Hasselt (Belgium). From 17:00 hrs till 00:00 hrs, 28 various artistic visions of the shifting boundaries between the ‘real’ and the ‘unreal’ will be projected on large store windows, cultural organisations and offices.

The artists in For Real visualize unknown realities, dream worlds, utopias or conversely apocalyptic stories that both amaze and alienate. The selected works are reflections on contemporary developments in film, media, commercials and games. Areas in which boundaries between reality and virtuality increasingly blur the artificial and the authentic.

The videos, by established national and international artists and new emerging talent, have rarely or never been displayed in public areas. In the urban landscape other layers of meaning are tapped into than when displayed in a ‘white cube’ and ‘black box’ where the ‘real world’ is excluded.

For Real will be presenting new and awarded works of art by:
Persijn Broersen & Margit Lukács (NL), Thomas Bürke (DE), Brody Condon (US), Chris Cornish (UK), Erwin Driessens & Maria Verstappen (NL), Pieter Geenen (BE), Stephen Honegger (AU), Harald Hund & Paul Horn (AT), Dagmar Keller & Martin Wittwer (DE/CH), Clare Langan (IE), Michael Najjar (DE), Jan van Nuenen (NL), David O'Reilly (IE), Saskia Olde Wolbers (NL), Jacco Olivier (NL), Hans Op de Beeck (BE), Joris Perdieus (BE), Nicolas Provost (BE), Christine Rebet (FR), Hiraki Sawa (JP), Monica Studer & Christoph van den Berg (CH), Mungo Thomson (US) and Markus Vater (DE).

For Real is organised by Viewmaster Foundation, Maastricht, and curated by Bart van den Boom.
Viewmaster Foundation wants to place video art (and related media) in the Euregion, by realising high-profile video art projects in the urban and public space (and other special locations). Artistic, social and cultural topicalities are the main focus. Viewmaster Foundation wants to reach a large and new audience, and set up new partnerships.
