The AllSense exhibition guide has been developed by visorApps for the OSTRALE – Zentrum für zeitgenössische Kunst (centre for contemporary arts) Dresden. It has been updated and adapted to the current Ostrale Art Biennale and can be downloaded for free from the App Store and the Play Store. Users who have installed the old version of the app will receive a free update.
The main venue of the 2019 Ostrale is a historic cigarette factory. Visitors may take an inclusive tour of this exhibition space by following the red line on the floor. As they approach individual exhibits included in the tour, the AllSense app will offer an explanatory video in German Sign Language for each of them. Additionally, one of the new visorBoxes has been installed at each of the exhibits. With the tap of a button in the app, the visorBox will announce the name of the exhibit, allowing visitors who are blind or partially sighted to locate each piece of art independently.
The Ostrale Art Biennale 2019 may be visited until 1 September.
