Illusion and deception
Art has always played with our perception and shows us how easy it is to be deceived. New materials and digital image processing have become so perfect that it's not enough to look carefully to know what we're dealing with: Fact or fiction. The exhibition "Thrill of deception. From Ancient Art to Virtual Reality" at Ludwig Forum Aachen is devoted to a broad panorama of the most diverse aesthetic forms of illusion and simulation. With around 100 works from four centuries, the exhibition presents fascinating examples from the fields of painting, sculpture, photography, film, video, immersive and interactive media art, augmented and virtual reality, applied art and design. It thus offers a highly entertaining journey through the (art) history of illusion.
