In the months of October and November, we are preparing Saturday guided tours of the international group exhibition of the festival of art, technology and science, KIBLIX 2020–2021: Virtual Worlds Now. The exhibition is rounded off by 18 artistic works by internationally renowned artists. The co-curator of the festival, Živa Kleindienst will take you on a journey through the KIBLIX exhibition.

The exhibition, which is on view at KIBLA PORTAL, the largest independent exhibition centre in Slovenia, provides a critical overview of contemporary virtual spaces through a series of innovative art research projects in the field of the latest virtual (VR), augmented (AR) and mixed reality (MR) technologies. The exhibition centres around the human experience of virtual reality – with all the material limitations and socio-political conditions that determine the body – while comprehending the virtual environments as spaces for speculative realities, variable identities, and ever more acute social transformations. The KIBLIX2021 festival’s central question, posed by the curatorial team is: which and what are the virtual worlds now?
