We are at a critical juncture: We haven’t gathered, since XR has entered into hyperdrive; the foundations of the metaverse have been laid; interactions with AI have become commonplace, and an alternative art market has been established on the blockchain.
This year, the Inter:Active Symposium will bring together artists, curators, funders and distributors across film, games, theater, fine art and XR, to discuss where we are headed and how to collaborate to get there together.
Discover this year’s INTER:ACTIVE SYMPOSIUM
This year’s first physical edition of our Inter:Active Symposium, curated and hosted by Mark Atkin, who is also the Head of Studies of CPH:LAB and curator of CPH:DOX’s Inter:Active Exhibition, will use the occasion of introduction of the projects developed by CPH:LAB to consider the cultural landscape into which these works will emerge. How do we make sure that the future belongs to us?
The Inter:Active Symposium will take place on March 28, 2022 at 15:00-18:00, at Kunsthal Charlottenborg, and will be available to all accredited guests and ticket holders.
Meet the 9 CPH:LAB projects and check their prototypes
Exploring the subject of TRANSFORMATIONS, a selection of nine CPH:LAB immersive documentary projects has been through an intense, six-months development programme in 2021/2022. The CPH:LAB projects deal with a wide range of contemporary topics explored via different immersive technologies such as VR, AR, video installation and live cinema.
The prototypes of the CPH:LAB projects will be presented at our Inter:Active Symposium on March 28, followed-up by a pop-up prototype exhibition.

New FORUM DES IMAGES award will be introduced for immersive projects
CPH:LAB is thrilled to announce a new partnership with Forum Des Images, NewImages Festival, which will give away three brand awards to this year’s CPH:LAB projects.
The main award consists of an invitation to participate in the XR Financing Market 2022 of the NewImages Festival, a leading European co-production and financing market, entirely dedicated to original immersive artworks.

As Elie Levasseur, Head of Newimages XR Market said “we believe that building a European distribution and co-production market for immersive art is a necessity. This year, Newimages continues to pioneer in the European XR industry by opening an new XR ART FAIR with the opportunity for the immersive artists to meet with international Museums and cultural venues.
