The Portal

THE PORTAL invites you to experience immersive works that cover a broad spectrum of formats and genres - as varied as stories are told, utopias are developed and world events are categorised. Some experiences have already won countless awards, others are just starting out. 

re:publica is the platform for social discourse, for media presence and digital technologies that we use every day – or will use in the future. We can't think of a better place to discuss this with you, because immersive media is a new, emerging form of storytelling and artistic expression. We should all take the opportunity to help shape the new medium and its content. 

We have selected twelve timeless XR experiences from studios in the capital region to showcase the power and limitless possibilities of the new medium. THE PORTAL is open to all. All you have to do is enter!
