“Games and Politics” Game Play Night
May 3, 2017 at 7:00 pm–9:00 pm
The Boston Cyberarts Gallery presents Games and Politics, an interactive exhibition by the Goethe-Institut in cooperation with ZKM | Center for Art and Media. This touring exhibition focuses on political video games and allows visitors to experience the pervasive forces which the playful digital medium of the computer game can develop. This international group of games are divided into six categories: Making Opinions, Military Matters, Multiple Perspectives, Media Critique, Migration Stories and Mapping Power.
Special for ArtWeek, on Wednesday, May 3rd the gallery will open for a Game Play Night from 7:00 to 9:00pm with a short talk by a video game theorist, allowing for much game play. Games include “Papers Please” about crossing borders, “Perfect Woman” about female role models, and “dead-in-iraq” based on the one person shooter, “America’s Army.” This is a chance to experience and interact with a unique traveling collection of video games during its only public Boston stop.
The interactive exhibition is open all ArtWeek-long, April 28 through May 7, from noon to 6:00pm.
