New Game Play
The Painstation is being exhibited at this holy place being part of the exhibition "New Game Play" in collaboration with the ZKM curated by Bernhard Serexhe (Chief Curator, ZKM), Stephan Schwingeler (Researcher, ZKM).
For twenty years, various forms of artistic, experimental, media-reflective as well as ‘serious’ types of computer games have been developed. New strategies in gaming are based on artistic research in the growing fields of audio-visual media. Computer games reflect and analyze the function and structure of our societies.
The exhibition New Gameplay is comprised of six sections, presenting works of game art ranging from art that has computer games as its subject to computer games designed by artists. Classic media art and video games will also be a part of this engaging dialogue.
