With DocLab: Domesticating Reality, IDFA asks the question: how does technology affect our behavior, our perception of each other, and the physical world around us?
40+ documentary experiences will be presented during the festival: from video art to virtual reality, from interactive installations to live performances. Expect dome projections in the ARTIS Planetarium, experiments with artificial intelligence and an intimate one-person walk through of someone’s home at a secret location. The works use new and existing technologies to tell contemporary stories, to play with our awareness of space and time, and to unravel patterns of human behavior. DocLab: Domesticating Reality will address subjects ranging from climate change and gentrification to the post-human body, from robots to online dating.
During the festival opening of DocLab: Domesticating Reality, catch short introductions and discover 30+ interactive documentaries and VR installations in the exhibition spaces from DocLab’s new main location, Tolhuistuin. Invite only.
