As a finissage event of the exhibition How to Win at Photography the final rounds of a playful tournament will take place: Curators turned sports commentators Matteo Bittanti and Marco De Mutiis will present artistic projects that have been created using in-game photography. The works address questions of photorealism, simulation, photographic practices in and against video games. Bittanti and De Mutiis ultimately choose what they consider to be the most exciting and best work with the help of the audience. Visitors play an important part in the process: they can cast their vote and decide who amongst the artists did it better in in-game photography!
The event takes place in English.

The exhibition How to Win at Photography – Image-Making as Play explores the relationship between photography and play. It investigates the notion of image play, creating unexpected connections between the history of photography, the gamification of the visible as well as practices of image making with and within computer games.
