Welcome EXPERIMENTAL GAME CULTURES

Performance Game/ Raumbefragung


Mit unserem Einzug in den Räumen der Expositur Postsparkasse heissen wir Sie herzlich willkommen in der historischen Kassenhalle der Gesamtkunstwerks-Postsparkasse, unserem Startplatz zu einem situativen Spiel mit Raum und sozialer Selbst-Organisation. 

Sneak Preview: COLLECTIVE DRONE Play … Don´t Touch the ceiling!
Wir lancieren den Protoyp eines im Experimental Game Cultures core-team entworfenen SITUATED GAME – für Dronen, die ihren Schrecken im Spiel verlieren, souverän als künstlerisches Instrument interpretiert werden, von und mit einem partizipativen und kollektiven Spiel, das dynamisch Spielregeln verändert, Nähe und Rücksichtnahme spürbar und notwendig machen wird. Architektur, humane und nicht humanen Player im Raum. Das Gefüge zwischen menschlichen und nicht menschlichen Aktanden wird hörbar... als ECHO in der Akustik des Luftschiffs PSK.

Please come, hear, see — and play!

WELCOME!

We aim to introduce game changer games!
The newly established master program Experimental Game Cultures puts a focus on emerging forms of societal impact through play. The study program aims at a critical reflection of the social impact of games while simultaneously applying it to the prototypical development of innovative game concepts and approaches. The central aspect of the study program is therefore the interweaving of the development of innovative game concepts with a critical examination of games in their various historical, societal and social contexts. Artistic research
areas of the program 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. UNSER WEG IST DAS SPIEL!“
