Sixteen significant politically-ambitious video games from around the world are presented in this traveling interactive exhibition. Covering a wide range of political topics - including precarious labor conditions, war, gender issues and surveillance - the games invite visitors to immerse themselves in this powerful digital medium to experience at a personal level the complex feelings and pervasive forces at play in the worlds around us.
Opening remarks by game developer Paolo Pedercini (Carnegie Mellon University School of Art), followed by a reception and a chance for visitors to try out the games.
Organized by the Goethe-Institut in cooperation with the Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe (ZKM | Zentrum für Kunst und Medien in Karlsruhe).
