CaixaForum Madrid turns into a huge videogaming centre
Madrid, 20 July 2021
- The Homo ludens. Video games to understand the present exhibition, curated by Luca Carrubba and designed by the Domestic Data Streamers studio, presents an anthropological look at video games, a cultural, aesthetic and artistic phenomenon essential in contemporary mass culture.
- The display analyses video games as an industry, cultural medium and creative proposal, based on specific examples of video games and contemporary artworks. It includes works by such artists as Bill Viola, Daniel Canogar and Mónica Rikić and offers an interactive, innovative journey in which the spectator takes centre stage in a gamified, participatory experience.
- The thesis of the exhibition confirms the existence of a world in which life and play are increasingly intertwined. In fact, without realising it we now play when we travel, learn or even fall in love.
