The blogger conference re:publica was a big success and even made it in the major german news show tagesthemen. I met a lot of people and saw many interesting lectures. Especially Julian Klücklichs lecture on MMOs, dystopia and utopia was very good. Except the typical technical problems my lecture on thursday went very well. The picture shows the Google Map pin which I build for Plazes a while ago at republica.
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.
