The exhibition explores the concept of the body in virtual worlds, tracing the journey and transformation of the human body in the context of the blurred boundaries between the virtual world and the real world. What happens in the encounter between the human body and technology? How will our role as humans be redefined? How are the influences of accelerated technological development reflected in social textures and human existence? These and other questions resonate throughout the exhibition, which features a selection of video and new media works by Israeli and international artists. The works on display attend to the concept of the virtual body from philosophical, moral, psychological, cultural and economic perspectives. They give expression to changing reactions ranging from enthusiasm to curiosity and concern regarding the implications of the dynamic, bustling reality forming before our eyes.
