From Europe to New Zealand, 32 artists designed 58 cards, some altering the already existing Major Arcana, some inventing their own. In order to create the perfect atmosphere, 7 sound artists shaped a soundscape inspired by the artworks.
No one knows where or when was born the Tarot, nor who invented it. We don't even know the meaning of this word, nor to which language it belongs to. Some consider them an Alchemycal Work, Astrological, Cabalistic.. but in the first place Tarots are an Art Work. Everyone, from Initiates of different branches of Magic to Artists coming from every Nation, everyone attempted to paint the real Tarot: but maybe the real Tarot doesn't even exist, and it is only a constant research of a superior/interior knowledge.
Behind the many significances of this ancient Art, an intimate vision and a personal interpretation are hidden: the Real Tarot is the one that each creates. From Europe to New Zealand, 32 artists designed 58 cards, some altering the already existing Major Arcana, some inventing their own: besides the symbolic meanings, each one is undeniably enshrouded in a halo of mystery and magic. In order to create the perfect atmosphere, 7 sound artists shaped a soundscape inspired by the artworks.

Blissland is an art and new media project located in Berlin, run by a collective of artists and musicians. In the Land of Bliss every single atom is permeated with Art, and every month we try to alter the composition by mixing atoms of Sound, Visual and Culture, in order to create a different reality where it is possible to see with different eyes, hear with different ears, think different thoughts and speak different languages.
Opening: Friday, January 14th h19
Bornholmerstr. 8 - Berlin
