Since its opening in 1997, numerous computer games have been presented in a permanent exhibition on the second floor of the ZKM | Media Museum, since these reflect an essential part within modern society heavily influenced by digitalized realities of life. For centuries new artistic, experimental, media-reflective as well as ‘serious’ forms of games have evolved. In the past decade alone, the cultural influence and economic power of digital games and gameplay have experienced enormous and continuous growth. Digital games also generate promises and equally vague fears.
In June 2013, the ZKM | Media Museum will open a newly designed exhibition on the theme and significance of the computer game in general and the digital game in particular. The exhibition has the purpose to explore the multi-facetted layers of games with a critical gaze.
Curator: Stephan Schwingeler and Bernhard Serexhe
