31 RUTLAND ST, LEICESTER LE1 1RE
ALL DAY LIVE EVENT 17TH JUNE 2017
In the late 1980s and early 1990s something strange was happening. Early Virtual Reality and Internet were combining with house music, neo-psychedelia and cyberpunk fiction to produce a cultural movement that would herald the new hyper-connected world. Cyberculture: The Beginning of the Modern World is a exhibition of material from this era that explores this brave new world from the perspective of those who were there. The exhibition also marks the launch of the Nemeton Archive.
