BetaCamp: SuperTele

Inspired by the fluid and ever-evolving nature of extended reality, BetaCamp: SuperTele, at iMAL invites its audience to embark on an extraordinary journey that explores and crosses the boundaries of extended reality. Questioning conventional perceptions of what XR can be, iMAL aims to open the conversation around XR as an artistic medium.

Delving beneath the glossy surface of novelty sales pitches, SuperTele introduces a dynamic hybrid space of critical reflection on its contribution to creative production through the eyes of inspiring practitioners throughout the years and mediums. How and why is extended reality used in contemporary artistic practices? What lessons can we learn from online spaces and 3D environments? How valuable can obsolete technologies be in a world of rapid technological progress?

Guided by iMAL's hosts the audience of SuperTele will have the opportunity to be introduced and reflect on old and new cutting-edge artistic explorations, participate in insightful discussions with pioneers of the field in a playful re-discovery of the past and an inspiring introduction to the unknown future of our extended realities.
