ART GAMES | Exhibition | 2.-9. November 2019

Mexico City, Seoul, Boston, Jakarta, São Paulo, Novosibirsk, Athens, and Bangkok: for eight game jams all over the world, ART GAMES united programmers and game developers as well as artists and creatives.Drawing from their diversity, they developed (digital) games which renegotiate the boundaries between art, politics, and games. How can artistic strategies expand the scope of games or transcend the limits of game designs? What are the underlying politics of the gaming industry? And how can game practices be used to challenge and advance political processes?

A selection of games from each location, chosen by a jury, was exhibited at the international A MAZE. / Berlin Festival from April 25 to 29, 2018 and now the exhibition is coming to Sofia for the Sofia Game Night 2019.

ART GAMES is a project of the Goethe-Institut in cooperation with Maschinen-Mensch and is sponsored by the Federal Foreign Office of Germany.

The exhibition ART GAMES in Sofia is organized by Goethe-Institut Bulgaria in the framework of Sofia Game Night 2019.

Partners: French Institute in Bulgaria and French-German Cultural Fund.
