Unfolding Pigments: An Exhibition Manifesto of Paintings and Video Games

Although the pop-cultural reach of video games has been increasing for decades, along with the complexity of the content negotiated by the games, beyond the scope of the screen they are almost exclusively positioned in marketing and merchandise clichés – which often subjects this content to a kind of “voluntary banalization”. So how can a game be presented and contextualized beyond the game itself? This exhibition curated by Christian Bazant-Hegemark employs the art domain as a playfield in order to fathom artistic ideas conceived by game developers.
