Artistic Merits of Violence in Games
Today at the MQ/Raum D in Vienna/Austria at around 7 pm a talk will be held on the artistic merits of violence in games. You heard me right – the artistic merits of violence. Jurie Horneman, a former Rockstar, is going to try and find some value in the use of violence in games, while keeping in mind that this is still a highly controversial topic that is only approached from one side – the real-life killing spree.
If you believe that there are no artistic merits in anything connected with violence – show up and voice your opinion in a non-violent manner. If you cannot think of one good reason why there should be artistic merit in anything – show up and be enlightened. If you are simply into games and find this topic intriguing and highly controversial – show up and have a good time.
Where? Museumsquartier Raum D
When? Sat. Nov. 28th at 7pm (which is tonight!)
Entrance is free, only the number of seats creates an artificial limit.
See you there!
