Cybersalon Summer School: The Critical Play Of Serious Games
FILM & DIGITAL CULTURE
• Days with event
Venue: Raum D / quartier21
Cybersalon (UK) presents Richard Barbrook and his new book "Class Wargames. Ludic Subversion Against Spectacular Capitalism". The author of "The Californian Ideology", "Media Freedom", "Imaginary Futures", and "The Class of the New" drafts a situationist practice of the Information Age as a chronicler and strategist of the London-based art collective Class Wargames. At the centre of his new publication stands Guy Debord's Game of War, a training simulator for political activists fighting a society of spectacle.
Stefan Lutschinger, goup member and author of "Malevich. A Suprematist Board Game", will partake in the discussion.
Moderation: Johannes Grenzfurthner (monochrom)
With Eva Pascoe, Simon Sarginson, Adriana Smentek, Tine Scharffenberg, Filip Janczak, and Fabian Tompsett.
