The exhibition Game Art (Mejan Labs, Stockholm) will take a closer look on how artists have used computer games, modified, copied and deconstructed them and how they have borrowed their form and aesthetic. The exhibition takes off in the early 1960′s to contemporary pieces and includes strategies from performance to digital generated pieces.
It discusses the icons, the aesthetic and the economic and social contexts that are created around the games and how the computer games can be used to create narratives. The exhibition also discusses if computer games have influence on our understanding of our selves and the reality around us. What happens when someone play games to such extension that the larger part of his or hers lives more or less is lived within the games? What does the stereotyped description of bodies and the sexes in the games mean to our conception of us and our bodies?
