Exhibitions are sites of knowledge production and exchange, and their spatial qualities are central to contextualizing the information harbored within the artworks they present. In virtual emulations of exhibitions, immersion is not bound to geographical location but to the interplay between materiality and representation. Bringing together partners from around and beyond Europe, the research project Beyond Matter (2019–23) aimed to make sense of the interdependence between physical and virtual and to decipher the impact of that interdependence on the spatial aspects of producing, curating, and mediating art. In exploring the so-called virtual condition, the project proposed new modes for preserving cultural heritage while probing the potentials of digital world-making.
This publication offers a comprehensive overview of the multifaceted research activities conducted by the Beyond Matter partners and takes a deeper look at the enfoldments of virtual reality. In interviews, scholarly essays, and other texts, the authors document the project outcomes and expand on its theoretical foundations.
