Art and Gaming 2014

At the forefront of collaborative and interdisciplinary practices, Of Games – a gaming residency at Khoj was keen to explore new mediums and forms of creativity. Khoj wanted to develop this residency towards an intersection of artistic expression and technological inquiry. This residency was an exciting opportunity to articulate the contribution of games towards visual culture. Khoj offered its 16 years of archive as inspiration for producing new games and toward contributing to the creative and cultural importance of computer games.


About this edition

Of Games – II, the second iteration of the gaming residency at KHOJ, took forward KHOJ’s interest in interdisciplinary art practices. Games have always existed in cultures and gaming has become ubiquitous with the information technology boom. Through this residency KHOJ tried to explore the ideas of game and play through the lens of contemporary art practice. From games as tools of social engagement and change-making devices to games which are studies in hardcore lucid experiences, this project aimed to explore the entire oeuvre.
