In July, concurrently with the Gameworld exhibition, LABoral Centre for Art and Creative Industries is organising four workshops exploring the intersections between videogames, art and reality today. A different side of videogames will be revealed by creators who can uncover their codes, subvert the standards imposed by the industry and can even address social and political issues through them. Game hardware and software will be used for performances, activism and critique. The goal of the workshops is to familiarise participants with the language of videogames and enable them to create new meanings and results.
