experimental game cultures:
Artistic research areas of the programme include the use of games and play as an instrument for a better understanding of social, economic and political contexts and for the democratic shaping of their future.

The head of the department Margarete Jahrmann states: “For me, artistic play is the experimental testing and subjective experience of alternative possibilities of the world and agency. Play as a participatory process can show us ways to positive change, new forms of future society, politics, and empathic coexistence.

Through the conscious breaking of rules, the transformation of rule systems, the acceptance of ambiguity as a quality in play, a new understanding for the global challenges of our time can emerge. Our way there is the game!“

Please forward onto anyone that you think that may be interested in the course!
