IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCES

BERLIN • THE HAGUE • RENNES

 

SEPTEMBER 14 - JANUARY 7

 

Guest curated and directed by Jongsma + O’Neill, Loot: 10 stories uses next-generation storytelling techniques to explore the topic of looted art and restitution in an innovative exhibition featuring original objects, physical and digital replicas, and film and virtual reality experiences, immersing visitors in the compelling stories of looted art from three periods in history: art looted in the colonial period, art looted by French in 1795 and art stolen from its Jewish owners by the Nazis. Blueplanet VR provided all central photogrammetry and digital set design for the VR experiences.

Ten case studies will explore the past and future of objects in the collections of the Mauritshuis, three Berlin museums (Ethnologisches Museum, Stadtmuseum and Gipsformerei), and the Musée des Beaux-Arts (Rennes, France). Loot opens at the Mauritshuis in den Haag in September 2023 before moving to the Humboldt Forum in Berlin in 2024.
