NUIT BLANCHE 2018 AT THE GOETHE-INSTITUT
Information on the activity
The Goethe-Institut, in collaboration with the Quartier des spectacles Partnership, is proud to present two works by the inventive research and design studio from Berlin: The Constitute, coming to Montreal for their first visit to Canada. The Constitute has created two original works for the Goethe-Institut, one, Zeit-Slice, to be experienced outside by way of an interactive window projection connecting the cities of Berlin and Montreal, and the other, a special VR experience of selected Berlin-neighbourhoods which awaits the public inside only on Nuit blanche.
