The Scream VR


Edvard Munch’s The Scream is omnipresent. The famous face distorted by terror has fired our imaginations so greatly that it has become the universal symbol of dread. Are you ready to unleash the secrets of the most famous « scream » in art history?

Alone in an empty museum, you find yourself face to face with the painting. Do you dare touch it? Take care: demons and phantoms will spring from the canvas and drag you into the depths of the artist’s tortured mind.

Based on the painting, The Scream VR carries the user away to explore the painter’s obsessions and work. This interactive and sensory virtual-reality experience unfolds in three chapters, presenting a unique interpretation of the Expressionist masterpiece.

THE SCREAM VR in an interactive virtual reality experience in real-time 3D, compatible with controllers and Leap Motion. Available in English, French and German, THE SCREAM VR lasts around 15 minutes.

The interactive experience is available on VivePort, Steam, and as an installation.
The 360° film including 3D audio is available on the ARTE360 app.

Available on Steam and VivePort
