SoAH Research Presents: Entanglement: Just Gaming
Presented by the ENTANGLEMENT research group
25 June 2020 | 5pm – 9pm
Entanglement: Just Gaming is taken, in part, from Jean Francois Lyotard’s iconic book Just Gaming. In it he describes the postmodern condition as a ‘game’ divided into 7 days. In this online event, led by professor Johnny Golding and the researchers of Entanglement, the ‘just gaming’ has been divided into seven ‘days’ held over a four hour mash-up (5pm-9pm). Mirroring JF Lyotard’s work, speaking raw, eloquent, disturbed, playful to the wildly harsh moments of our contemporary world(s).
