On friday the 18th of june, TAG opens the new exposition Robert Overweg: photographer in the virtual world at the Concrete image gallery in Amsterdam. Overweg ends his successful artist in residence period at TAG with an exhibition where he shows the results of this residence.

Overweg dwells through the virtual worlds of first and third person shooter games. He looks into the similarities, differences and borders between the virtual and the physical world. Borders which are being tested and stretched by Overweg.

He sees the virtual world as a direct expansion of the “real” world, the virtual places where players come together in multiplayer maps are for Overweg the new public spaces of contemporary society. For him it is logical to document his experiences and research through his photography. While making use of the new possibilities the virtual world give him.
