When I was a kid we used to pick up dumped black and white TVs from the streets. In the late nineties and early 2000’s I couldn’t resist to collect all these CRT screens in the street (it’s stil going on but eventually I dumped my electro trash collection a while ago). Today it seems I witnessed a new era of electro trash. It is the very first time that I found a crashed iphone in the street (next to a tree in a small bush, typical CRT spot). I am curious how many more years it ll take till people will dump working iPhones …. (or anyone lost his in Bremen Mitte? Sorry man, I ve bad news!) … and I had to explain to my son why it won t make sense to get it repaired. Another sad part on how to explaining society.

Out Of Bounds
The first in a four-part exhibition series exploring how artists make work with and about video games, Out of Bounds is an exhibition investigating the architecture of game spaces. The exhibition will reflect upon how artists use game development software within their practice to comment upon the video game landscape, alongside our collective fascination with seeing what’s beneath the surface of both the games we play and the spaces we encounter on a daily basis.
Each exhibition in the series will be accompanied by a reading list of books that inspired the ideas behind the exhibition, as well as a number of books selected by the exhibiting artists that inform their practice, available to read within the gallery space.
With artworks from Aram Bartholl, Bob Bicknell-Knight, Alice Bucknell, Mario Mu, Rosa-Maria Nuutinen, Everest Pipkin, Amba Sayal-Bennett and Mathew Zefeldt, curated by Bob Bicknell-Knight.
