About the event

Mit der Einführung des Computerspiels entwickelte sich eine eigene Kultur des elektronischen Spiels. Die Veranstaltungsreihe will Arbeiten von in Berlin lebenden Künstler*innen vorstellen, die sich kritisch mit den Computerspielen und ihren sozial-politischen Wirkungen auseinandersetzen. Parallel widmet sich das Filmprogramm in einer Reihe von Dokumentar- und Kunstfilmen dem E-Sport, der als Spezialfall des Spiels als Spiegel und Exerzierfeld der digitalen Netzwerkgesellschaft betrachtet wird.

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.

Demented Reality Research is an 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. Simon Schäfer expanded 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.
