Thu, June 14 — Sat, June 16 2018 /// 
Bains Numériques, Dig­i­tal Fac­to­ry #2, Enghien-les-Bain­s/­Paris ///

Bon­soir France !

From June 14 to 16 2018 qujOchÖ will per­form MYTH OF THEUTH at this year’s Bains Numériques, the great media art bien­nale in the north of Paris. As part of the “Dig­i­tal Fac­to­ry #2” it will be pos­si­ble to play indi­vid­ual sta­tions of the game in the French ver­sion and drinke one or two liqueurs.

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.
