VRwandlung: the Virtual Transformation of Gregor Samsa

Tranform into Gregor Samsa, the protagonist in the novella The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka.

VRwandlung is an interactive installation, where one appears in the middle of the action when Gregor Samsa transforms into a huge insect. Through the VR headset, one can experience the reality through Gregor’s eyes. Everything that used to be familiar, including one’s own body, seems now awfully strange. In the VR experience the visitors learn to live in a new body and to move around in Samsa’s room. But what’s outside the room, and where are the keyes?

The exhibitions also includes four 360 ° -videos that are exhibited in the Cube (Kuutio) of Oodi. In the videos Kafka-autobiographer Reiner Stach provides the visitors with more information on the topic.

The exhibition opens on 5th Aug at 5 PM, and it is open daily from 11 AM to 6 PM.
Free entry.
