This award-winning project is a Germany/France/Norway co-production for ARTE that extends far beyond TV into collaborations with Science and Technology organisations (Fraunhofer) and Art Museums (Alte Nationalgalerie, Munch Museum, Musée de l’Orangerie), pointing the way to new approaches to financing and audience engagement.

The three-part VR series does far more than invite us into famous paintings but asks us to share the emotional and sensual aspects of artistic expression through the work of three painters who were each developing their practice in a fascinating way: Munch exploring light in The Sun; Monet capturing time in the Waterlily series, and Caspar David Friedrich facing the ineffable in Monk By the Sea.

The associated 8x52’ TV series, The Art of Museums, explores international art collections though the unique perspective of special guests such as Vivienne Westwood, Karl Ove Knausgård, Marina Abramović, Ólafur Eliasson and others.

This session will examine how this complex co-production came about, how the partners were assembled and their roles in the production, the financing and exhibition of this extraordinary work.

Immersive technologies are opening up new platforms and new ways of connecting with audiences. What are the new partnerships, venues and platforms that are transforming today’s production landscape?

We will look at examples across museums, location-based entertainment experiences, theatre, games and podcasts as today’s immersive producers expand their partnerships and broaden their storytelling capabilities across multiple venues and devices. We will examine what works for audiences, what are the new finance plans and models of sustainability and asking what is the role of television in creating experiential media.
