Day / Time:

@ Gerichtstrasse 23, Hof 5, 13347 Wedding, Berlin

The invention of video games created a new form of gaming culture. In the series "eGames", which runs from April to August, presents works from Berlin-based artists who use video games and related genres as a medium for art and critical reflection. Monthly artist presentations are accompanied by artist films and documentaries that relate to games, sport, technology, art, and eSport, considered as mirror and parade ground of digital networked society.

Artist Presentations:

Jessica Palmer is a Canadian artist living in Berlin, currently working with game engines and performance software, brain computer interfaces, and virtual reality to create impossible collective experiences.

Merle Leufgen is an artist deploying highjacked commercial software. Her current work examines non-human intelligence, emergent ecologies and the concept of “ending” in times of steady data streams⛓.

Brody Condon uses game development tools, online games, sculpture, live performers and found footage as performance surrogates, blurring the boundary between fantasy and reality. For Condon’s project gallery Modifications, he re-imagines late medieval religious paintings into self-running games that simultaneously imply and deny interaction, and uses sculpture and video to explore the “projection of self” into other realities.
