The Game: The Game at Belvedere 21 Museum (Vienna, Austria)
The Game: The Game was exhibited in a new installation for the CIVA Festival at the Belvedere 21 Contemporary Art Museum in Vienna, Austria in 2023. Full press text below.
Cyberspace has triggered a cultural shift that enables a new understanding of body, identity, and mind. Through the virtual, we are able to create new forms of intimacy, relationships, and kinship, and enable a greater diversity of identities. However, it also propagates coded prejudices and disembodied violence that nevertheless become very tangible through the phygital nature of our reality. Curated by Eva Fischer and Martina Menegon, the exhibition Intangible Care explores tactics of care as artistic practice. It unfolds a collection of seven international positions that address the intangibility of our contemporary phygital world and develop strategies of resilience. Through video and immersive and interactive installations, Intangible Care plays with both tangible and intangible concepts, activating an urgent dialogue and exploration of care and affect in our contemporary and technological society.
The exhibition will be on view in the basement of Belvedere 21 from February 17 to 26, 2023. It forms the centerpiece of the festival, which will be framed by a subsequent screening program on the opening day and a diverse outreach program during the 10 days of the festival.
