MYTH OF THEUTH is a media-phi­lo­so­phi­cal board game deve­lo­ped by the Aus­tri­an art collec­tive qujOchÖ. While wal­king through anci­ent Athens, up to seven peop­le gather dif­fe­rent media and get in touch with media-phi­lo­so­phi­cal cele­bri­ties from the anci­ent world to the pre­sent. Vilém Flus­ser dri­ves asi­de the tele­ma­tic socie­ty ad nau­seam, Lau­ra Mul­vey takes a joy­ful look at our memo­ry and Mar­shall McLu­han final­ly gets his well-deser­ved mas­sa­ge. Smart­pho­nes, news­pa­pers, Lego bricks, slee­ping masks, stamps, liqueur and other media are used through twel­ve uni­que sta­ti­ons.
