You need our eyes to see us

Event on June 27 2023 – Invitation only

We are celebrating the premiere of three digital prototypes and a new storyshow. These playful and imaginative artworks were made through the NEO-Collections project. They showcase a new approach to digital co-production and audience engagement.

This special three hour event celebrates a new way of working for the Übersee-Museum with international artists and creative technologists. Along the way, the museum is also developing new approaches for audiences to enter into conversation with objects in its collections.

We invited critical friends and passionate experts from Bremen and “umzu” to learn from them how they feel about the journey we are on.
