After Ars Elec­tron­i­ca Fes­ti­val in Sep­tem­ber this year MYTH OF THEUTH is pre­sent­ed for the sec­ond time, this time at the quitch. Vis­i­tors can play the game in a spe­cial arrange­ment sur­round­ed by blow­ing fans with mag­net­ic tapes. There will be free liqueur for the play­ers, a philo­soph­i­cal dis­co, Michel Fou­cault cook­ies and very spe­cial cocktails!

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 mes­sage. Smart­phones, news­pa­pers, Lego bricks, sleep­ing masks, stamps and oth­er media are used through twelve unique stations.
