If our problems were part of an enormous game, would we solve them differently? The “Digital Playgrounds” symposium held in German at the Museum Angewandte Kunst in Frankfurt will be investigating this question on 23 February 2018.



 

The future is subject to the ongoing process of digitalisation, the effects of which on our society cannot yet be fully foreseen. In view of the complexity of a digital society, the symposium will ask what responsibility is borne by the game and our ability to play in this situation.

The conditions in the game are different from reality: in the game you can negotiate freely, threats become a challenge, and an effort that misses the mark does not lead to failure, but to another attempt. Agora would like to explore this approach in a dialogue with invited speakers and visitors, thereby stimulating an exchange of ideas on how to acquire and teach confidence in playing.

Agora is a collective of designers and philosophers, which deals with the changes in the public sphere caused by the successive digitisation of all the involved fields. The symposium is taking place in co-operation with Frankfurt’s Museum Angewandte Kunst and the Offenbach University of Art and Design and builds on the theme of last year’s “Artificial Empathy” event which looked at the sensitivity of artificial intelligence. The event takes place from 3 pm to 5.30 pm; prior registration is not required.
