Life’s a game—but who are the players? Let’s Start Playing the Game, a reader designed to accompany the 2015 exhibition, proposes play as a synonym for social interaction. Offering a variety of perspectives by artists, designers and writers, and including four new games that were featured in the exhibition by artists Heyheydehaas, Julien Carretero, Thomas Lommee and Uglycute, along with several existing game-oriented works by artists Mireia c. Saladrigues, John Körmeling, Ryan Gander and Aurelien Froment, this publication playfully blends conversations about production, dialogue and wonder. Contributors Petra Van Brabandt, Paul De Bruyne, Florian Schneider, René ten Bos, Laurence Scherz and Harvey Herman explore how in game playing, rules are reinvented, innovation and dialogue stimulated, and anarchy and flexibility tolerated, among many other fascinating topics.
