Director Bernd Scherer on the program September/October
Society is pervaded by a sense of bewilderment: values and communities based on them are under pressure. In full awareness of the serious situation, it’s worthwhile to take a look at the game. Our fall exhibition The Most Dangerous Game follows the traces of the Situationist International. It reveals how the playful utopias of the 1968 student revolt were commercialized. The game lost its innocence.
The contributions to 100 Years of Copyright also travel between games and seriousness, original and plagiarism. In the place where free downloads and intellectual property meet in music, HKW creates space for alternative ideas and new perspectives. What hasn’t yet been thought of, said or done to come closer to a world that’s more worth living in?
