An art education project using augmented reality accompanying Joanna Piotrowska’s exhibition at Kunsthalle Basel (25.10.2019 – 5.1.2020).
With the project Hyperlink, the Art Education team and the creative coder Sarah Buser help participants to use augmented reality to create virtual experiences and responses to the exhibition of films and photographs by the Polish artist Joanna Piotrowska.
Participants will see the exhibition being installed and have the chance to meet and talk to the artist. They will then develop their own contributions, reflecting their personal associations with the artworks on display. The newly generated content will be virtually superimposed on the space, where it will appear when exhibition visitors scan the artworks with a tablet. The Hyperlink project connects artworks with participants’ digital content and will give their unique perspectives on art a public presence.
The Hyperlink project will be presented to the public at Kunsthalle Basel at 6:30 pm on Thursday, 28.11.2019. The augmented reality tour will then be available to visitors free of charge for the duration of Joanna Piotrowska’s exhibition.
