A game seems so simple, but in the end it is a complex phenomenon that gives us the possibility to think outside the box. Playing makes it possible to reinterpret reality, to explore taboos and to experiment with the impossible. In Games People Play, eight artists and artist collectives explore the social function of playing and the rules of the game.

 

From Thursday to Sunday, 1 to 5 pm and on appointment
Because of the holidays Nest will be closed from December 24 till January 1

Marijn Ottenhof: The Conversation / 2016

In everyday life people play games consciously, and perhaps even more often unconsciously. They manipulate each other, build their image in social media, repeat phrases and thoughts they did not come up with themselves, follow unwritten rules and codes of behavior. Personal relations built in such a manner mirror how daily life is filled with corporative language, advertisement, political debates, state propaganda and media warfare. When watching a soap opera or a new Netflix TV show how can we see what comes first — real life or scripted emotions?  How does fiction influence reality and vice versa?

In The Conversation by Marijn Ottenhof the living room becomes a TV show, the TV show walks off screen, a safe environment becomes dangerous and privacy presumes surveillance. 


Aaron Schuster in conversation with Robert Pfaller, Thursday January 12, 8 pm

What games do we really play? - CANCELED

What is de role of gamesplay in society? What is the connection between games and social relationships? Aaron Schuster will discuss this with Robert Pfaller, cultural theorist and author of the book On the Pleasure Principle in Culture: Illusions without Owners. In this book Pfaller explores our approach to pleasure, belief and illusion in sports, design, eroticism, social intercourse and games. Aaron Schuster is a writer, philosopher, author of the book Trouble with Pleasure about the concept of pleasure in the history of philosophy. He was a visiting professor in the University of Chicago and a tutor at The Sandberg Institute.
