Almost every larger city has a planetarium, but hardly any of them use these spaces as places to experience contemporary art. The programme series ›The New Infinity‹ explores planetariums as galleries of the future. In the post-digital age, they combine digitally generated image and spatial sound concepts with a virtual experience of nature. Since 2017, Berliner Festspiele has been producing commissioned works by contemporary artists and shows them at planetariums and full-dome festivals around the world. Over the past few years, in Berlin alone around 40,000 visitors have seen these films in our mobile dome, followed by guest appearances in Los Angeles, Buenos Aires, and Barcelona. Beside the screenings at Kreuzberg’s Mariannenplatz, ›The New Infinity‹ will be presenting its program this year at Zeiss-Großplanetarium in Prenzlauer Berg. For the very first time, we will present in collaboration with Stiftung Planetarium Berlin a new program line that adapts classical avant-garde films of Visual Music for the dome space and places them alongside contemporary repertoire of visionary artworks from the history of art in the city.
