Politics is the continuation of war by other means. And wargames are a continuation of politics by other means. So listen with great care and internalize well, fellow workers: Terrain! Combat! Cavalry! Arsenals! And Lines of Communication!

“The Game of War is a Clausewitz simulator: a Napoleonic-era military strategy game where armies must maintain their communications structure to survive – and where victory is achieved by smashing your opponent’s supply network rather than by taking their pieces.”

“Rules seemed the limit to this game and they remained vague enough throughout that night.”

 

We certainly enjoyed CTM’s parallel exhibition “Esemplasticism: The Truth is a Compromise”.

A bunch of young International artists
shaping disparate things into a unified whole
Recognition, Emotions, Desire -->
Pataphysics!

A color-, play- and tasteful reflection on the suggested superficiality of our hyper-technological world that tends to fancy technology over artistic vision and where we engage in *a* future discourse that externalizes imagination and idolizes gadgets with our heads turned towards the past.

"When art no longer functions on an emotional or philosophic level, when it is unreflective and contributes nothing to our experiences of constructing meaning, what truth are we compromising?"
