void Start(){Play( //BURG, 2018

In October/November 2018 we had an exhibition about art and culture of games: void Start(){Play( at Burg Gallery Volkspark.

Games are part of everyday culture. They can be played everywhere: at home, mobile and connected with others. They are an established medium, at the center of various subcultures and are also subject of sustained artistic inquiry. Players/designers/artists analyze and question rules, possibilities of agency and forms of expression in games and develop new forms of expression. The exhibition void Start(){Play( showed experimental games, as well as artistic comments about games.

Curated by Prof. Jonas Hansen, Mathias Jüsche and students of Multimedia|VR-Designs.
