What is the position of the class of “gamers” in today’s culture and society? Could game culture be used for emancipatory
purposes and education? Is the militarization of game culture something that can be deconstructed or does it represent a highly
customizable recruitment and ideological tool of the war culture?

 

The exhibition “Play Cultures” is an international exhibition that presents contemporary artistic production that uses the
language of digital games and shows one possible view of how the genre of digital games can be used in a creative and engaging way. The exhibition consists of standalone games, mods, video works, multiplayer games and interactive storytelling. Exhibition consists of works covering wide spectrum from political propaganda to hacker techniques and from high aestheticism to social themes.
