The Langen Foundation on Museum Island Hombroich is displaying selected works from the Burger Collection, Hong Kong in the exhibition How to See [What Isn’t There]. 46 works will be on display, including sculptures, installations, paintings, photography, videos, VR and performances.

Burger Collection Hong Kong is a private collection of contemporary art which represents a broad spectrum of works from Euro-American, Indian and Asian art, reflecting a global approach to the collection.

The work of Canadian artist Jon Rafman is a world premiere and was created specifically for the exhibition: Deluge (Hombroich missile base) is a dark vision exploring the unseen dangers of war. Using 3D glasses, Rafman depicts the military past of Hombroich missile base with frantic virtual reality images that move between delirium and reality. Rafman’s images are computer-generated and convey a combination of the material and digital world, reality and technological effects.

235 MEDIA installed the work by Jon Rafman and supplied the hardware.
