Hello list, I think that many of you might be interested in this
exhibition I'll be co-curating in May with Lindsay Grace, from the
American Univ. of Washington.
The exhibition will take place as part of the DiGRA conference
(digra2015.org) in Luneburg, Germany, May 14-17th.
Deadline for proposals is Sat 28th February.
Please let me know if you have any question!
Blank Arcade returns after its successful 2014 edition in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Blank Arcade: Games out of Joint is more than just a sequel, mod or
expansion pack. It revisits its own concept through an exhibition of
experimental games and artworks that push the boundaries of game
design and theory. The curators invite artists, scholars and designers
to propose works that investigate and question the ‘instrumentality’
of entertainment. We are more and more surrounded by video games that
propose to be more than just ‘for fun’: games for health, education,
social and civic engagement and so on. But what else can games be? How
can games be used for trouble-making, rather than problem-solving? How
can games become environments for posing new questions about our
society, beliefs, and lives in general?
