The program will include interactive installations, AR and VR projects, games, workshops, 360 performances, and screenings.

The Exhibition will host works by Greek and foreign artists. Among the artworks that will be presented, it will be the new interactive installation Black Hole by Yiannis Kranidiotis (GR), a light and sound sculpture inspired by the geometry of black holes. Moreover,  Ι, Human by Saint Machine (RO) will be presented for the first time in Greece at the Eugenides Foundation, looking at new patterns of technology-facilitated collaborative behaviors. Specifically for this event and venue, a VR project was created, Fabien Prioville’s, dancer of Pina Bausch, (FR) Rendez-vous, co-produced by Tanzhaus NRW, redefining contemporary dance and traditional theater. Another artwork comes from Taiwan and Dr. Ya Lun Tao (TW)*, Time Panorama, a VR artwork based on the idea that the world is made up of illusions and is the panoramic projection of desires.
