After the success of last year's exhibition that transported us into the world of virtual reality and 360-degree video experiences, VR/360°@ANIMATEKA is back with a new selection of internationally acclaimed independent VR works.

When the sun got tired of the humans it decided to hide and never rise again. The darkness awoke the dead from their graves. A zombie kid called Gloomy and a mortal girl called Nena fall in love and immerse in a deep connection that not even the most powerful man in town can destroy.

Step into the stillness of an abandoned school and enter Gymnasia, a place where the ghostly ephemera of a lost childhood await you. Recall the particular sights and sounds of a child’s world through the echoes of ball games, school lessons and choir recitals. Gymnasia reanimates the memories of those forgotten days.
Songbird: A Virtual Moment of Extinction
Lucy Greenwell, Michele & Uri Kranot (The Guardian, Late Love productions), UK, Denmark, 2018, 10'
Songbird is a fairytale with a dark heart. You will be transported to the island of Kauai in 1984
and into a painted replica of a lush cloud forest filled with colourful birds. Here, you are invited to search for the last known ʻōʻō, an iconic black bird with yellow leg feathers and a beautiful song, a bird whose existence has been threatened to the point of extinction.
