E-Games – Die Kunst des ernsten Spiels #6

Artists Presentation by Simon Schäfer (GER)
Screening: An Alternative Reality: The Football Manager Documentary (2014) by Louis Myles

19 September 7 ?? — 10 ?? (free entry)

⌮ eGames – the art of serious games ⍼
The invention of video games created a new form of gaming culture. In the series “eGames”, which runs from April to August, panke.gallery 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.

Simon Schäfer expands his sculptural practice through audio-visual circuit bending and hardware hacking, exploring interconnections between object, sound, technology, installation, performance, theater and Quark. As “der Warst”, he does pretty insane audio-visual performances.
Demented Reality Research is his ongoing experiment with perception, space and performance, based on a series of video goggles built out of repurposed hardware. Made to interfere with the wearers vision in several challenging ways, their aim is to force new perspectives through disorientation.
