Eixogen: Alternate Stories from Within the Digital City
Join us in -1 for Eixogen: Alternate Stories from Within the Digital City, a collaboration between Showroom MaMA and Nieuwe Instituut’s -1. The evening marks the last of a series of four Live Action Role Play (LARP) events, in which the team behind MaMA's current exhibition Modding the Mirror World engage with the topic of living in the city of the future and the role of subcultures in it. Participants are invited to join in an alternate reality role-playing game called Eixogen.
9 November 2023 16:00 - 20:00
As part of the session, artist Angeliki Diakrousi will share her research on the presence and impact of Mosquito devices installed by the Rotterdam municipality. Through her interactions with affected individuals and residents, she uncovers the invisible lines drawn by these devices in supposedly public spaces. The session will be broadcasted to 868mhz.net, an in-game online radio stream.
