Bergstraße 12a, Salzburg ///
At the invitation of “Interuniversitäre Einrichtung Wissenschaft und Kunst” (Inter-University Institution for Science and Art), a collaboration between Paris Lodron University and the Mozarteum University, qujOchÖ is coming to Salzburg with MYTH OF THEUTH. As part of the W&K forum “Artistic play spaces as participatory places of learning?”, after a round of games, the possibilities and limits of using games to promote participation and impart knowledge will be discussed in a panel discussion.
MYTH OF THEUTH is a playful exploration of media theories from ancient history to the present day. 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.
