Augmented Reality (AR)
This exhibition is the first Augmented Reality (AR) in the Atrium of the City Hall in The Hague. AR occurs when an extra layer of information about reality is added digitally. This can be done by projecting images onto spectacle lenses, but often AR is simply shown on a screen. This can be done, for example, on a smartphone or on a television. 

Festive Month September
The exhibition opens during The Hague UIT Festival, is on display throughout September and also runs parallel to Open Monument Day, Prinsjesdag, Prinsjesfestival and Royal The Hague.
