Centro Cultural Las Cigarreras, Calle San Carlos 78, Alicante, Spain
August 2 - September 30, 2018
Negocio investigates the function and effectiveness of social critique expressed by alternative games and video games:
In the current context, where our freedoms and our civil rights are being challenged, games can become a powerful tool to subvert the world around us, to test mechanisms, roles, guidelines, utopias or dystopias in a way that escapes conventional ways of expression. This exhibition tries to find new ways of thinking about games, new ways to use games to reflect on the rest of the world. What does it take for a game to become an artistic means and how can art subvert the hierarchies of power?
