Since time immemorial, art has been playing with our perception, showing us how easy it is to deceive us. Be it ancient frescoes that simulate spatial depth, baroque church furnishings that seem to expand the earthly around divine spheres, or today's computer-generated virtual worlds that you can immerse yourself interactively in, rather than just look at, based on the optical and technical insights of their Time artists have always developed new means of design to trick their audience and to dazzle it with their artistry.
With exhibits from painting, sculpture, video, architecture, design, fashion and virtual reality works, the exhibition offers a highly varied and entertaining route through (art) history and its visual forms of appearance and illusion. Through the thematic juxtaposition of objects from different centuries, the show reveals surprising traditions and invites you to meet the environment with a keen eye.
