People enjoying themselves, bizarre animal creatures, and unruly goings-on – Hieronymus Bosch’s famous painting The Garden of Delights is one of the most enigmatic and impressive paintings in the history of art, particularly because of its seemingly endless amount of fantastic detail.

From September, visitors inside the Museum of Communication will be able to view these details from a whole new perspective: In the Virtual Reality Experience DelightfulGardenVR visitors inside can literally step through the screen into Hieronymus Bosch’s Garden of Delights while donning a VR headset and experience an exciting adventure about sin and guilt.  However, the virtual reality exhibition not only enables a special, interactive art experience, but also provides insights into TimeLeapVR’s production process: from the authentic transfer of the artistic style and the reproduction of the image content to the animation of the garden’s inhabitants. In the process, visitors inside are invited to reflect on the experience of real and virtual worlds.

DelightfulGardenVR. A Virtual Reality Experience in Hieronymus Bosch’s Garden of Delights is an exhibition of the Museum Foundation Post and Telecommunication and is supported by the Dr. Marschner Foundation, the Hessian Cultural Foundation and „experimente# digital – a cultural initiative of the Aventis Foundation.
