The Berlin Mondiale at HAU Hebbel am Ufer in April 2016

Worlds of Games

An expedition into the interactive adventure spaces of machina eX

As part of “Berlin Mondiale” HAU Hebbel am Ufer is beginning a close collaboration with the refugee housing residence at Moritz Platz. For this project, artists from HAU are asked to take part both personally and artistically, developing creative encounters. The first collaboration between HAU Hebbel am Ufer and the Wohnheim Stallschreiberstrasse is taking place with machine eX:

Games are ancient and everywhere. No matter where in the world or at what point in the history of humanity, we find people playing and thinking up games. The worlds conceived and experienced entice the players into fantastic spaces outside their everyday lives. The participants of the workshop themselves become game designers and players. Together with machine eX they invent and play new adventures, create mysterious spaces and tell interactive stories. Using a lot of creativity and various materials from paper to the computer, they conjure up atmospheres in which reality is suspended for a moment in the game.

A cooperation of HAU Hebbel am Ufer with the Wohnheim Stallschreiberstrasse and machine eX as part of the “Berlin Mondiale”. The “Berlin Mondiale” is a network of a wide variety of cultural institutions in Berlin, each of which has a partner residency. The network is supported by the Project Funds for Cultural Education.
