SXSW South by Southwest Festival 2019, UNESCO Media Arts Exhibition, Central Library, 710 César Chavez Street, TX 78701, USA ///
Heading to the Lone Star State!
MYTH OF THEUTH goes overseas. The board and parlour game for artists, philosophers and gods will be presented for one week at the UNESCO Media Arts Exhibition at this year’s SXSW South by Southwest in Austin, Texas, one of the largest and most important festivals for film, music and interactive media in the United States.
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.
Supported by the Arts and Culture Division of the Federal Chancellery of Austria, Department II/6, and LinzEXPOrt 2018.
