During the NECS conference Alejandro González Iñárritu’s ground-breaking virtual reality installation CARNE y ARENA (Virtually Present, Physically Invisible) will be presented in Amsterdam.
Based on true accounts by Central American and Mexican migrants, CARNE y ARENA, is a six and a half minute solo experience that allows individuals to walk in a vast space and thoroughly live a fragment of the refugees’ personal journeys. It employs the highest virtual technology to create a large, multi-narrative light space with human characters.
Online ticket are on sale for time slots from 17 June – 1 July 2018, through eyefilm.nl/carneyarena.
This year’s NECS Publishe rs Forum will be located right at the heart of the UvA Humanities
Campus in the VOX-POP / Venture Lab Building (Binnengasthuisstraat 9, Amsterdam).
VOX-POP / Venture Lab will also be the location for the main conference registration and information desk, and there will be a special small photo-exhibit by VOX-POP affiliated artists.
