MYTH OF THEUTH comes to Salzburg!

From 8 pm on, a game evening with Salzburg media artists and the­o­reti­cians will fol­low in Stu­dio 3:

  • Miri­am Mone aka Mimu Merz, media artist, fine artist, musician
  • Michael Man­fé, senior lec­tur­er for media the­o­ry, cul­tur­al the­o­ry and method­ol­o­gy at the pro­gram for Mul­ti­Me­di­aArt at Salzburg Uni­ver­si­ty of Applied Sci­ences,

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.
