Gut gespielt: Der Mensch und sein Avatar.

Curated by Josiane Imhasly.

Well Played: The human and his avatar From the scene of joyful dissolution of boundaries to the experimental field for 'real' life: the game is a multifaceted cultural technique. Although it forms its own virtual realm of reality, the game has a real impact on people and society. WELL PLAYED tells of the relationship between player and character and asks to what extent the ego in the game is not something else, but has something to do with me. From the imagined alter ego in shadow boxing to the disguised cosplayers and furries to the character in the video game: Man stands in a tense relationship between the world of play and reality.
