In November 1974, Werner Herzog learned that his close friend was on her deathbed in Paris. Herzog believed that if he walked, on foot, from Munich to Paris, his friend would not die. He believed that a simple action, like walking, could contain a healing power. This year, the inaugural !f Tomorrow section showcases works made in virtual reality and various interactive platforms. These new digital media allow meaning to be communicated through action. When we look at the world with new tools, we can see it in new ways. The selected works in this exhibition attempt to approach history, the present and the future through new storytelling methods, while substantially contributing to public memory and visions of tomorrow.
