In his presentation, Gundolf S. Freyermuth will focus on the modern history of VR. In a first step, he will examine VR’s prehistory in analog media. This prehistory begins soon after the Renaissance with the opposition to the emerging modern image space and its detached – anti-immersive – window view, which would characterize not only perspectival painting, the picture frame stage, cinema, and television, but also the computer and its screen.
A discussion and reception will follow the presentation.
Date and time: 7 p.m. September 7, 2017
