- Sylvia Eckermann, media artist, http://syl-eckermann.net

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.
